Solve or surface

The best thing we can do is to solve the problem.

Sometimes, however, solving the problem is outside our control. In these situations, the best thing we can do is find the problem – i.e., provide clarity on the nature of the problem and surface the issues that led to the problem in the first place.

Complaining, it turns out, is never the right answer.

That energy is always best redirected to one of the above.
