First Understand The Problem

How often do you find yourself rushing in to fix things with good advise and good intentions, only to find that you "misunderstood" the problem? Too often in today's rushed society, we are in such a hurry, we don't take the time to make sure that we understand the problem before trying to develop or deploy a solution. By then, we often times need to back out and start anew and losing time! By taking the time to truly understand the problem before trying to solve it, you can save time and energy and look truly smart for taking the time to listen and understand.
