I am not a big fan of Tony Wagner's Habits of Mind or any other approach that places too much emphasis on a problem.

The more time we spend looking for problems the more of the problem we are likely to see.

Really.

There is evidence of this. If you like I can cite some references.

What if we focused on potential rather than problem? As soon as we begin inquiry into something we are triggering a change.

The very act of observing something changes it - it could be a change towards a positive potential. Wouldn't that be fabulous!
