The most important question ever

Humanist Thought of the Week: 3 23 2010

The most important question

Proper problem solving requires some degree of understanding the actual problem you are trying to solve.

In other words, you need to know the truth about your problem.

Leading to the most important question that people never ask themselves

How do I know if what I think I know is true?

One of the main reasons we aren’t all that good at solving our problems is because we assume too much.

And this is why Humanists rely on skepticism.

We might not always be able to solve our problems.

But by being skeptical of our own assumptions we at least improve our odds.

Your first step is to make sure that the problem you are trying to solve is the problem you actually have.
