Make Peace With the Problem

Every problem has a solution. Not in the way you think, though.

There are times, of course, when the proper solution is indeed a struggle. A quasi-Sisyphean task. Some hurdle to be overcome, some summit to be reached, some hard-won victory to be struggled towards.

Surprisingly often, though, the better solution is to simply stop resisting the problem. Accept it for what it is. Make peace with it. Learn to live with it.

It’s a lot harder to do, and it’s a whole lot less glamorous. But if it works, who cares?

The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.

Sun Tzu – “The Art of War”
