When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that
the pens wouldn’t work at zero gravity (Ink won’t flow down to the
writing surface). In order to solve this problem, it took them one decade
and $12 million. They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity,
upside down, underwater, in practically any surface including crystal
and in a temperature range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.
And what did the Russians do??
The Russians used a Pencil!!!
Sometimes, when we’re facing problems, we’re just too focused on the problems, not the solutions. The answer shall be found, if we keep our mind clear along with the right way of thinking. The best solution should be simple, applicable & economical. Yet the simplest is not necessarily the easiest, but the hardest thing is to make it complicated.
So in our term, when the storm hits us, we’re always remembered that every bookstore sells pencils.
