Most mornings I start my day by working on “7 Little Words” — a quick word puzzle that provides clues to utilize an attached set of letters. On many days, there is a clue that initially stumps me, but when I get down to the final set of available letters I am usually able to figure it out.
I think the puzzle is a good reminder that all of us have more knowledge than we give ourselves credit for. We may not see the solution right away, but we can piece together clues to deduce an answer if we look at the question from another perspective.
The next time you’re faced with a situation that puzzles you, continue moving forward as far as you can go. You may be surprised to learn that you have uncovered the answer along the way.
