You are Solving the Wrong Problem

Retrain your brain to reframe the problem in the age of AI

About the Book

Why do we often struggle to solve problems effectively? We end up spinning up wheels, no closer to a solution than when we started. This insightful book rethinks problem-solving to reveal a counterintuitive truth: the problems that seem easy are usually the hardest, while complex problems can be simplified and solved through strategic thinking. You can solve smarter, not work harder.

Learn to retrain your brain and reframe any problem with the collaborative human-AI approach outlined here. Develop the critical thinking skills to identify root causes, gather data, and challenge assumptions. Leverage AI and other modern tools to enhance your analysis. Adopt the curiosity mindset that unlocks innovative solutions.

Through relatable examples and hands-on exercises, the author guides you step-by-step through techniques to:

- Retrain your brain to approach problems without preconceptions

- Reframe problems from different perspectives to reveal the actual issue

- Resolve problems by targeting root causes for lasting solutions
