I have been thinking a lot about impossible problems this week…a lot. We learn the most from the challenges that get that label: “IMPOSSIBLE”. Impossible is often in our minds. If describe something as impossible, our natural confirmation bias will only allow us to see the solutions that validate the problem as such. But if we are willing to try…..to start……we may just find the beautiful, or at least suitable solution hiding in the forest of impossibility.
