Not My Problem

It's a true maxim that you are either part of the problem or part of the solution. This might seem like an inflexible approach to situations, but I have found it to be valid.

We can usually identify the things that are wrong in situations--a critical eye is not difficult for most of us to develop. It actually takes more patience and creative processes to identify an issue or trend and then work towards a feasible solution. The fixation on problems doesn't actually improve anything without action. Too many businesses, schools, churches, and families are overwhelmed with people who are contributing to their problems by simply pointing them out. If we actually desire to see things made better, we need to discern potential ways of improvement as we see trials arise. It's a philosophy and process that is best started within each of us.
