Walk Towards the Problem

I’ve been working towards my Lean certification and have been involved in a difficult, albeit amazing Lean project. I asked our Master Black Belt how we should approach a certain situation on the project and his words of wisdom were, “Walk towards the problem, not away from it.”

This blew me away. How many of us truly “walk towards the problem”? Most of us want to run screaming away from the problem! However, in Lean, it’s much different and I believe that’s why I love it. How many of us whine or complain when the going gets rough? Do we really give it the “ole college try” or do we throw in the towel too early?

This week I challenge all of us to “walk towards the problem”!
