Problems are like sludge that gathers in one place. They collect and can drown you, but they don’t move quickly. Like zombies in old-school horror flicks, they’re dangerous in large numbers if you let them catch up with you.
Solutions are quick. Opportunities are fleeting, and they don’t always run toward you. You’ve got to catch them.
The upshot is: if you find you have a lot of problems and few solutions, get moving. Go to a new place, new activities, new people. You’ve let yourself get surrounded by sludge and used up all the solutions in your immediate area. But if you shake it up a little, you can give yourself a little breathing room and find some more tools.
