How to Think Like a Fool #1: Look for Trouble

RISK: Look For Trouble
To solve problems like a fool, you need problems. You may object that you already have enough problems, but RIPPO the Fool knows that finding the problems before they find you gives you the upper-hand and the element of surprise.

The world is your banana peel—step on it! Embrace the peel! Say "yes!" to the problems that you encounter. Dance with trouble and you'll exercise your creative muscles.

Plus, a pinpointed problem is easier to solve.

What's your problem? Find another. And another. Bring it on.
