#Problem #Symptom: 2018-09-14

•1 Your problem with your problem is your problem’s best friend and supporter.
•2 Counter-intuitively, you’ll often find that your problem with your problem is just like it.
•3 Trying to fix a problem without first fixing the main problematic responses to it is like trying to roof a house before building that house.
•4 If you try to focus on a problem without first addressing the problematic way that the problem is treated, then despite your best efforts you will fail to fix the problem.

•5 Working on the problems about a problem first is a systems approach versus a symptomatic approach that ignores the related and sustaining problems that occur along with a problem.
