Finding Faults vs. Seeking Solutions

Project Management ProblemsWe live in an imperfect world. Most projects are fraught with problems. Why is it then that some people prefer to find faults instead of seeking solutions to problems? That’s because it is easier to whine. It’s easier to complain. It’s easier to do nothing.

If you find issues or problems in the office or in your projects, start seeking for solutions instead of focusing your efforts on finding faults on others or the “system”. It is better to be a part of the solution instead of the problem.
