    Solve issues by providing sustainable answers.

    Even had a word left over! But truthfully, don’t well all spend 99.99% of our time addressing issues and problem solving? I don’t even need to know what your specialty is to know that we all face issues every day in everything we do. To this end, I think we all focus on attempting to find solutions to difficult items throughout the course of every day, every week, every month, and even every year. The trick simply is to identify those solutions that are able to endure and to pass along lessons learned and best practices so that others can move on to the challenges that require more attention, vice spending our time on those topics that have already been addressed.
