A wise person said: “To guarantee success, spend 95% of your time defining the problem and 5% of the time solving it.”

I believe deeply in that quote. In my life I spend an extraordinary amount of time understanding the problem and attempting to define it clearly. As if by magic, I find that it is then much easier to find the optimal solution (or realize none exists!).
