Different problems require different treatment.
But when we think it’s one thing and it’s really something completely different, we can come to the wrong conclusion.
We can prescribe the wrong treatment.
We can spend time and effort going in one direction when in fact we ought to be going completely the opposite way.
Sometimes we have to try things to find this out.
If things aren’t improving, then maybe we need to try another approach.
There are endless possible solutions. Sometimes experimentation is only way to find what works and what doesn’t.
But before we can hope of finding the right one, we have to know what it is we’re dealing with.
It might be the wrong course of action.
Or we might be trying to solve the wrong problem.
