The importance of reframing
I wish somebody had explained this to me earlier in my life:
Easy problems are those where it is always clear what the next step
would be, and where each individual step leads to more clarity. The
sequential nature of discovery is something very hard to appreciate if
you've not experienced it.
Hard problems are those where it is not clear what the next step would
be. It often requires meta-insight: why is there no insight coming?
How can you think of yourself as a tool that is not used properly?
