Untangling the problem

Sometimes when we see a difficult problem it just looks like a tangled mess. Like ivy covering a tree, we can’t see what’s really there.

In our frustration, we can give up or do something drastic. Like cutting down the tree, or walking away from an important issue.

But if we step back and instead of pulling a thread, or two, we tease open the tangled mass… We might just find we can see the problem better.

And frame a much more powerful question to work with.
