How to solve your problems without causing new ones
The search for answers is one of Humanity’s universal goals. From day to day, you live to solve your problems.
Whether it’s searching for a way to save time, a way to save money, a way to earn glory and fame, a way to pay bills and put food on the table, or a way to conserve our planet’s resources, all humans with a goal are searching for answers.
Before searching for answers, it’s a good idea to learn how to search.
We need to figure out what kind of solutions it’s best to look for.
With global problems on the rise, we can no longer afford to spend resources on solutions that only solve a single problem and sometimes cause other problems as a consequence.
Aren’t all solutions a solution?
The best solutions we can create are ones that pay for themselves in some other way.
Resources are valuable and are increasingly stretched thin as our population grows. A global solution shouldn’t require an unreasonable amount of resources in order to be put into practice.
Solutions shouldn’t cause other problems.
A good solution would not only solve a problem or relieve a symptom. It should also provide additional resources that we can use, or solve more than one problem.
The systems I have outlined in my Climate Change book contain the potential for solving problems while providing additional resources.
We may need to invest time, research, and resources at the outset, but by creating and implementing a solution properly, it should pose no additional problems as a result.
We need to make a change.
Rather than looking for a profit when creating solutions, we need to think of the future. Our future, and our children’s lives. Otherwise, they’ll inherit a world with little to work with.
