Stop trying to solve problems once and for all

How often have you speculated about the outstanding results you could achieve if you simply had enough time to figure out a perfect solution? Have you entertained the idea that, if coworkers would just listen to you or adopt new attitudes and processes, you could finally achieve success? Hey, you are not alone! Being effective at work and producing good results is something that requires creativity, problem solving, and teamwork. However, the pursuit of a perfect solution or process (i.e., you will never have to make adjustments or changes again) is a foolish endeavor.

Applause for Bob Boilen’s ‘Tiny Desk Concerts’

There are moments when you first hear the melody or lyric of an unfamiliar song that can result in pleasant skin tingling sensations, a welling up of energy, or an emotional response like tears or joy. We are introduced to these experiences by friends, music evangelists, or clever marketing campaigns. The later has made use of increasingly potent visuals in the form of music videos and/or subliminal presentation of catchy tunes in advertisements, television shows, and film in order to introduce us to new music experiences.
