There’s a Problem (0:29)

— The problem is not that you don’t put in the effort. The problem is that the effort you’re putting in is not going where it’s needed most.
 

— The problem is not that you don’t know how. The problem is that you resist doing the necessary research, to figure out how. 

— The problem is not that you don’t have the connections. The problem is that you don’t use the connections you do have to lead you to the connections you want.

— The problem is not that you don’t look for solutions. The problem is that you keep choosing the same old, worn out solutions over and over, expecting the problem to go away.

— The problem is not that “there just isn’t enough time in the day.” The problem is that you procrastinate, and allow petty distractions to steal your focus and garble your critical thinking.

Important because the problem is not that you don’t know what the problem is. The problem is that you DO know what the problem is and you resist doing anything about it.
