All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem. — Martin Luther King, Jr.
One important characteristic of great problem solvers is their recognition of this truth. Upon climbing one hill we tend to encounter another hill. We can be beaten down by this fact or motivated by the process. The experienced problem solver relishes the process of problem solving and is excited when faced with the opportunity to exercise their skills.
Physics teaches us that every action has a corresponding reaction. We can’t enter a ‘system’ without having some sort of impact on the system. So, it is inevitable that our solution to any problem will cause additional problems. Take a breather when a problem is solved but make it short. Our problem solving skills are needed just around the corner.
