It isn't that he can not see the solution. It is that he can not see the problem. - G. K. Chesterton
For many years I had this quote hanging over my desk at work. Was I really seeing the problem? Many times yes, many times no. Perceptions are frequently wrong. More information, maybe even insight, or experience is needed. Is there a problem often times is The Question?
Being quick to judge and hard on myself has frequently led me astray. Funny thing is I am asking myself what does this have to do with Patrick the guitarist? The desk this hung over was at my day job. But tonight I think I need to allow this quote to inform the musician.
