As humans, leaders and wise humans, we love to solve problems for others. It makes us feel better, and we believe that it would make them feel better as well.
Except, that it doesn’t.
Smart people suffer from a problem called The Curse of Intelligence. They want to solve things fast. Make everything aligned. Remove the chaos.
It hardly helps anyone. The one whose problem needs to be solved – the company, the family or friend have a certain way of operating that is different from who we are as an individual.
A real smart way is to ask questions. Questions help them understand the problem better. So do they help us.
The best part? The one seeking for help gets it in the manner best for them.
It turns out, the things that work conventionally, are rarely the things that work conveniently.
