We are the solution because we are part of the problem

The parent who has forgotten what it’s like to be a child doesn’t understand why her kid won’t keep his room clean.

The coach who cares only about winning is frustrated by the athlete whose goal is simply to keep in shape.

The boss who doesn’t believe in friendships at work is surprised at how few people apply when he has an opening.

“Problems are not divorced from the way we think about them.”

Derek and Laura Cabrera, in Systems Thinking Made Simple

Never try to solve a problem assuming it has nothing to do with you.
