Q. Where do solutions come from?
A. They come from everywhere. Back in the day, a wise person told me, “never fall in love with your own ideas”… meaning you should be open to other ways at looking at things, other opinions and be willing to engage in meaningful collaboration. I’ve never seen a solution spring, fully formed, out of a single brain… certainly not mine!
