"Solving the Right Problem" is another way of saying, "Learn to Live Wisely" because problems are a given in life. And that means every area of our lives: the personal life and the public life.

But also of equal importance, which is not stated here, is the way we solve the right problem. Have you ever heard about "Doing the Right Thing the Wrong Way"? Well, we call the way we solve problem "methods or methodology". Even if you target the right problem(s), applying the wrong methods produces the same effect as solving the wrong problem(s). And to live wisely, we do not only need to learn to solve the right problem(s), we also need to ensure that they are solved the right way, meaning that the right methods and means are employed.
