it’s a problem i know nothing about

“The night is large and full of wonders.”*

Richard Sennett exhorts us to go problem-finding as well problem-solving because we hone our skills through tackling different problems, not just the same ones over and again.**

This emphasis on the development of skills is a key one because, in our unpredictable world, there’ll always be new problems,

(*Lord Dunsany, quoted in the Northumbria Community‘s Morning Prayer.)
(**See Richard Sennett’s The Craftsman.)
