"What would intimidate you more, being told, 'Solve this problem', or being told, 'Find out if there's a problem'? Solving problems could almost be described as easy compared to figuring out whether we have a problem in the first place. It's hard to say we're lucky when we face a crisis, but knowing that action is called for is reassuring. The truest tests of skill and intuition come when everything looks quiet and we aren't sure what to do, or if we should do anything at all."
