If we are not focusing on the problem we will not get the right solution to the problem. People say search for the item in the place where you lost it. Is it not true?
"Life is easier when you enjoy what you do"
Point one: Seek the help of others to bail us out when we find ourselves facing tricky challenges
Point two: We focus on the immediate problem, leaving aside our routine jobs, thus creating a mess that could impact us in future
Point three: We should ignore the routines (that is what I gather) and focus on bailing out from the present problem
Point four: We will encounter opportunities if we look around
Point five: Finding a solution to the problem should be our sole goal
A lot of what you mentioned in the thread makes sense, but what about point two? Is it fine to ignore our routine jobs and let them pile up, so much so that they mess up our future? How about handling both responsibilities together, so the future is rosy too.
