What exactly is the problem? No, exactly.

Question mark by Marco Bellucci 

To be precise enough, F-R-E-E-Write your answer, and in the writing, answer these five questions:

  • What is the problem?
  • When did it start?
  • Why is it a problem?
  • How did it happen?
  • Who caused it?
A problem clearly stated is a problem nearly solved.
