On the other side of every problem is a creative solution. With the mindset that EVERYTHING is workable, there are no dead ends.

As a law student, that applies to how I organize my life. Balancing my interests and my commitments gives way to creative solutions and new strategies for efficiency.

As a basketball coach, problem solving is about motivating individuals to succeed as one. Not only getting the best out of each individual, but out of the team.

In politics, solving the problem of how to effectively communicate to and persuade voters is in every decision. Having the best idea is irrelevant if voters don't understand the message.

Problems are an essential ingredient for progress. If there was nothing to overcome, we would always remain the same.
