Difference Between Focus on Problems, and Focus on Solutions

When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space,

they found out that the pens wouldn't work at zero

gravity (Ink won't flow down to the writing surface).

In order to solve this problem, they hired Andersen

Consulting (Accenture today). It took them one decade

and $12 million. They developed a pen that worked at

zero gravity, upside down, underwater, in practically

any surface including crystal and in a temperature

range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.

and what did Russians do...........................

The Russians used a Pencil !!!

So, learn to focus on solutions not on problems
