Defining the Problem

Many people think you have to start with the solution. But that isn't really the way it works. In life and in college I learned that "Defining the problem and formulating a useful question regarding it" is actually the most important thing that anyone can do. Once any problem is properly formulated into a useful question, then millions of minds around the world can seek an answer to that question and begin to work to solve the problem. But, until the question is formulated into a simplified useful phrase often the problems stay muddled and unsolved for generations. So, the single most important thing any of us can actually do is to define the problems of the human race so that others can find solutions to those problems. By succinctly defining  problems we thereby begin to solve those problems and solutions not only can be found, they WILL be found.
