The Fix.

This is how life works.

How can you fix something when you don’t exactly know what’s broken?
You can’t.

You can only alleviate the pain, minimize the harm and buy enough time to test and figure it out. Sometimes you’ll succeed and other times you’ll fail. You’ll have dumb ideas, mistake them for great ones, get stuck in loops, have breakthroughs and even run out of time. This is the risk of doing anything significant or worthwhile. But if you’re confident in your abilities and sincere in your actions then the probability of finding a fix will rise exponentially.

If you’ve made it this far then celebrate your perseverance but realize that simply knowing the fix isn’t important. What truly matters is our ability to name the problem, not the symptoms, because only then can we attempt to control and fully resolve it.
