I went down the memory lane, to the time I first heard of a guy named Gerald M. Weinberg from the book "Are your Lights On?". Up until that point, I was a rabid "Solution Seeker", jumping at every opportunity to propose solutions to problems. After that book, I was changed. I realized that it is more important to actually solve the root problem than to propose solutions. I became a "Problem Solver", who started to treat the illness instead of treating the symptoms.
Anyone out there who feels that @jerryweinberg 's books and career had a material positive impact on their own career? (Yeah, rhetorical :-)-- Andrea Chiou (@andreachiou) February 26, 2013
And then, "Secrets of Consulting" happened.
