40. Understanding the Problem

“If you are unable to understand the cause of a problem, it is impossible to solve it.”

… Naoto Kan

A small quiz shared by Thomas

Question 1 : You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!

Question 2 : If you overtake the last person, then you are…?

Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person?.

Understanding the question is the first step of any problem-solving.

Similarly, understanding the problem is half the solution (Actually the most important half)

Identifying the problem makes decision making easy for working towards the solution.


Eventually you will see that the real cause of problem is not life itself.

It’s the commotion the mind makes about life that really cause the problems
