Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge: Day 1

A big thanks to my friend, Annie, at What the Woman Wrote for nominating me for this challenge. I had been away from the blogosphere for some time now. No prizes for guessing work life has been a little too overwhelming. As I write this, there are ten other things on my to-do list, of various priorities, but I believe I shouldn’t be away from something I love doing for too long.

So, I am indeed thankful to Annie for giving me a reason to start blogging again. Let me share the rules of the challenge with you all:

(1) Thank the person who nominated you

(2) Select one quote per day for the next three days and write a little something on it

(3) nominate three other bloggers for the challenge today

The quote for the day from my end is:

“If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.”

― Albert Einstein

This quote is displayed at various corners in my workplace (Mu Sigma Inc.). My job description requires me to solve problems for clients on a day to day basis. And the above quote is something that the data sciences industry (and many others) lives by. Unless you know the problem in and out, you can never come up with the most efficient solution that you are capable of providing.
What do you think? Was there a time when you had to think about a problem longer than it took you to execute the plans that led to its solutions? Share with me in the Comments below.
I would cheat a little here, and break the third rule of the Three Day Quote Challenge. I am not nominating any three particular persons for this challenge. If you are reading this, and this challenge interests you, nominate yourself from my end for the challenge.
Until later, keep typing!
Cheers,
Arpita
