Where do I start?

Solving our biggest problems is like being faced with a bucket load of lego building blocks.

Being faced with a bucket of pieces means that there are so many options open to us, and so many different potential ways of putting together the pieces.

We know we have a problem, we know that we probably have  all of the pieces needed to put together a solution, but where do we start?

This isn’t a solution it is a question.

You may have thought from the title of this post that I was going to provide you with the magic bullet to solve your biggest problem. SORRY! There is no magic bullet.

This post is really about starting a conversation about solving your biggest problem.

The Question/s.

  • What is the biggest problem that you are currently facing?
  • How do you know it is a problem?
  • In the past when you have been faced with a problem, how have you decided where to start with the solution?
  • Where did you look for the solution to your problem?

Where do you put your answers?

I’d really appreciate it if you would put your answers in the comments, because I would like us to start a conversation around identifying a problem, looking for solutions, building the solution from the ground up and learning where people go looking for solutions to their problems. Sharing your answers to the questions will probably help someone else to solve a problem.
