Effective Problem Solving Thought Process

Blog Post created by Duarte Leao Employee on Nov 17, 2017

Everyday, we struggle to solve problems and I find that there is a recipe for being effective at it:


  1. Struggle to find the Real Problem in the Current State of Affairs
  2. Identify and put circumstantial constraints aside
  3. Dream of the best possible Future State of Affairs
  4. Bring back circumstantial constraints that still apply
  5. Find a Solution: a practical Path to eventually reach the desired Future State of Affairs


That's it!
