The Answers or the Questions...

Have you ever had a problem that you struggled to solve then paused as you realized that you weren't even clear about what the problem was, exactly and clearly, its essence? For me, solving the problem often lies in the figuring out what the problem actually is. To find/create a true, whole solution for a problem, don't you have to figure out the true, whole of the problem? Just wondering. What are your thoughts on process verses product? Is one more desirable to you? Two quotes come to mind:

"I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by as you plan for that illusive and non-existent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey—now."

*Thomas S. Monson, “Finding Joy in the Journey,” Ensign, Nov 2008, 84–87

"The answers aren't important really... What's important is-- knowing all the questions"

*The Changeling by Zilpha Keatley Snyder, 1970.

*What the Dormouse Said: Lessons for Grown-ups from Children's Books, Collected by Amy Gash, pg. 103.

Hmm. There's lots to be said...
