Imagine trying to canoe across a lake covered in a heavy fog. While you’ll likely make it across, you’re unlikely to end up where you want. Canoeing in a straight line requires the ability to see where you’re going.
Working on problems also requires clarity to get where you want to go. If you try working on a problem without clarity, you’re more likely to create work-around, bandaids, and more problems.
When confronting a problem, start by looking for clarity about the problem. No blame, excuses, or other mindsets that will only keep you stuck.
When you have clarity, it’s far easier to find solutions to the problems that have you stuck.
You’ve got this.
