Be a Problem Solver!

A Problem-finder is like a commodity.

It doesn't take a genius to spot something that went wrong. It's easy to spot a problem. Everyone wants to do it. People will raise their hands and volunteer to get a piece of it.  Almost anyone is capable of being a problem finder.

A Solver is a novelty. They are rare -- hard to find and distinct. They do the things that others stay away from. While everyone is still pointing a finger, the solver is already taking the first step to bridge the gap between 'what is' and 'what could be'.

While the problem-finder is still making side comments on how to get things done, the solver, on the other hand, gets his hands dirty, not waiting for permission, approval or a nod.

The Solver adds value while the problem-finder add noise.

Be the Solver. Add value. Resist the temptation to speak quickly. Take action when there is an opportunity to do so!
