I’ve always been driven by the process of problem solving; the enthusiasm of listening to a problem for the first time, the hard work whilst trying to solve it, and the sheer joy once you solve it.
Problems can range from a 3rd grade math problem to quantum physics. From how to cross the road effectively to how to reach mars under a budget constraint. It doesn’t matter.
But nowadays I’ve noticed many want to solve problems, but they don’t want to solve new problems.
They don’t want to get out of their mental comfort zone; but they don’t realize that comfort zone is a bitch.
