Wicked Problems require Range

Wicked Problems require Range
The more constrained and repetitive a challenge, the more likely it will be automated, while great rewards will accrue to those who can take conceptual knowledge from one problem or domain and apply it in an entirely new one.

This excerpt resonates with me as I find myself tuning out if I have to repeat a task often. Wicked problems may contain repetitive aspects but it is likely that these would be a subset of the entire problem.

My way of dealing with the mundane and repetitive aspects is to look for optimization hacks. This could be via an existing app, some new way of doing things, or figuring out a new piece of software.

Complex problems are not that straight forward. They require conceptual reasoning skills that can connect new ideas and work across contexts.

This is an interesting introduction to complexity (7 min video):
