“There are no hard problems, only problems that are hard to a certain level of intelligence. Move the smallest bit upwards [in level of intelligence], and some problems will suddenly move from “impossible” to “obvious.” Move a substantial degree upwards, and all of them will become obvious” ~ Eliezer Yudkowsky
Here are five questions to ask when confronted with a problem:
- What is the real problem? Not the symptoms
- What are the solution objectives?
- What are my alternatives?
- What are the pros and cons of each alternative?
- Which alternative meets the solution objective the best?
