How we inherently respond, emotionally and attitudinally to problems demonstrates an attitude of curiosity, openness, and a willingness to act. We need not only survive but thrive by applying design thinking to solving problems. With design thinking, we make decisions based on what we really want. Design thinking can pose a challenge to our prevailing culture and approach, especially where there exists strong traditional cultural preservation, rigidity, and familiarity. The genius in design is the ability to select the problem as much as solve it within its context.
