Yesterday I was sitting down doing something on my laptop.

My butt started hurting.

My butt hurts when I sit too long.

I thought of an idea.

I thought I’ll create some type of cushion for people to sit on so their butt doesn’t hurt.

As I thought more about it, I realized my butt hurting was not the root of the problem.

The root of the problem is I was sitting for too long.

The solution is not a cushion.

The solution is to stop sitting and stand up and move.

Sometimes we can prevent the problem from happening in the first place.

Get to the root of the problem.
