Easy way out usually leads back in……


A passerby encounters a drunk on his hands and knees under a street
lamp.

[Man]              Can I help you?
[Drunk Man]        Oh sure

[Man]              What are you looking for?
[Drunk Man]        I lost my house keys

[Man]              Where did you drop them?
[Drunk Man]        Outside my front door

[Man]              Then why are you looking for them here…
[Drunk Man]        Well…there is no light by my doorway



Morale of the story

We all find comfort applying familiar solutions to our problems, sticking
to what we know best!

After all, if solutions were easy to see or obvious to everyone, it probably
would have been found and implemented. Pushing harder and harder on
familiar solutions, while fundamental problems persist or worsen, is a big
indicator of nonsystemic thinking.

   - What we need here is a bigger hammer syndrome
