The first sunglasses were invented in China in the 12th century. Primitive, expensive and not incredibly adept at blocking out the sun. They weren’t invented by accident either. Someone didn’t engineer a pair of glasses and then discover the sun. They were invented to solve a problem.
Then why do we continue to do things as we’ve always done and act surprised when we don’t get different results?
You don’t have to have the best solution but you do need to be thinking of ways to solve the problem.
