Do you solve problems or sit by and whine? The difference is profound.
Whiners are like ambulances that never stop. Zipping through neighborhoods of critically ill people – they just whine – pointing out the problem, upsetting the pets, causing everyone to be sleepless – but never doing anything about it.
Give me people of action. Give me people who actually put on the brakes, stop the ambulance, triage the problem and take action steps to isolate, remediate, and medicate so there is hope for recovery.
Every time you hear an ambulance – ask yourself if you're the siren or the solver who stops to do something.
