When solving problems, dig at the roots instead of just hacking at the leaves. ~ Anthony J. D’Angelo
Another nice little comparison to nature. The law of nature allows for a lot of wisdom, you just need to identify it.
If there is a problem, or challenge, don’t try to solve it by tackling only the outside or obvious in order to gain a quick fix. Try to solve the challenge for good, go into the roots of the problem and make it disappear forever.
This is true for anything. In life, according to Buddhism, you get challenges and only if you solved them you move on to the next step and challenge. If not you get presented the same challenge in various forms until you solved it.
So better get it done right the first time.
Have a fantastic day!
