During a discussion at our team meeting:

The food served at our canteen is horrible. I don’t have my lunch there. I walk over to the food court.

Ok. So have you ever though of solving this problem instead of complaining or taking the easy way out?

The last statement keeps ringing in my mind. How often do we stop to solve the problem on hand – or at least try to – instead of walking away from it? When I think back, I have often found a work-around to a problem instead of tackling it head-on. It’s a great learning for me and is a lesson I have resolved to imbibe and practice.

What do you do? Stop to solve the problem? Crib? Or, simply walk away from it?
