Some Thoughts On Problem Solving From Various Authors

“If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.”

Albert Einstein

“We always hope for the easy fix: the one simple change that will erase a problem in a stroke. But few things in life work this way. Instead, success requires making a hundred small steps go right – one after the other, no slipups, no goofs, everyone pitching in.”

Atul Gawande

“A sum can be put right: but only by going back till you find the error and working it afresh from that point, never by simply going on.”

C.S. Lewis

“It’s so much easier to suggest solutions when you don’t know too much about the problem.”

Malcolm Forbes

“My optimism and confidence come not from feeling I’m luckier than other mortals, and they sure don’t come from visualizing victory. They’re the result of a lifetime spent visualizing defeat and figuring out how to prevent it.

Like most astronauts, I’m pretty sure that I can deal with what life throws at me because I’ve thought about what to do if things go wrong, as well as right. That’s the power of negative thinking.”

Chris Hadfield
