“Focus 90% of your time on solutions and only 10% of your time on problems.”
Anthony J. D’Angelo
Being solution oriented is the antithesis of being excuse oriented. Think about people you know that are wired this way. What do they talk about? Their problems, not what they are going to do about it or how they are going to change things to solve the problem.
You have to understand the problem of course, but once you understand the only way to fix or change anything is to create action.
How much time and effort do you spend focused on the problem versus figuring out what you are going to do about it?
