In life, unless you’re more gifted than Einstein, inversion will help you solve problems

“The way complex adaptive systems work and the way mental constructs work is that problems frequently get easier, I’d even say usually are easier to solve if you turn them around in reverse. In other words, if you want to help India, the question you should ask is not “how can I help India”, it’s “what is doing the worst damage in India? What will automatically do the worst damage and how do I avoid it?”

In life, unless you’re more gifted than Einstein, inversion will help you solve problems.”
