How to solve bigger problems

What level do you (and those you work alongside) play at?

Solving bigger problems creates more change while offering a greater reward to those who do so.

How we arrive at those bigger problems determines our success:

  • Start small and work your way up? That’s your choice. The problem, of course, is that once you’ve figured out the small stuff, you’ve solved the wrong problem.
  • Start by tackling the big problems? That’s your choice. The challenge, of course, is understanding the big problems and then solving them. That’s the point.​

With few exceptions, we solve bigger problems by giving ourselves permission to tackle them in the first place, instead of getting distracted by things we think will give us permission.
