Jeevan was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He figured that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit even though he knew that he was not speeding.
Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed.
Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area once more, but the traffic camera again flashed. He tried a fourth and fifth time with the same result… and was now laughing as the camera flashed while he rolled past at a snail’s pace.
Two weeks later, he got five damn tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt!!
Flash: It happens to even the most seasoned of entrepreneurs. You’ve built momentum for your latest project, you’re excited to embrace new challenges and you’ve visualized success at the end of the road. But all of a sudden an unexpected problem stops you dead in your tracks — and this one seems impossible to solve. The major hurdles are disheartening. But the way you engage with and think about real problems directly influences your ability to solve them.
Moral: While masses are mostly stuck finding solution to a superficial problem, smart folks take a while to analyze the real problem, and look for a viable solution from a different angle.
Every problem has a solution. If an approach doesn’t solve it, you just have to be creative enough to find the real one!!
