Is it a Math Problem?

Added on by Sam Davidson.

The first step in solving a problem is to identify the kind of problem it is. Then, you can know what tool to use and who is best suited to fix things.

You don't solve a math problem with Shakespeare. You don't fix a sales problem with gardening. You don't solve an engineering issue with yoga. 

Sometimes, we think doing more of what we do best will eventually right the ship. But no matter how great you are at something, if water needs to be bailed out of the boat, the only thing that will help is you grabbing a bucket.

Spend time isolating and naming the problem at hand. Then, line up the resources that directly combat that problem.

There is no quicker way to get back on course.
