Sometimes we have it in our head a solution to what we think is the problem.

In this sense, your mind has already made it’s decision – the solution stays the same regardless of the actual problem. This is made more dangerous when every one starts drinking the same kool aid.
It is helpful to pause from time to time to remind yourself: what is the problem you’re trying to solve?
