“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.” -Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
A good producer anticipates problems before they arise.
A good producer creates conditions so that the fewest possible problems will arise.
A good producer solves problems when they do arise.
A good producer realizes that the problems are really opportunities in disguise. (Rhyming was purely accidental.)
That what appears to be an obstacle is actually the way forward.
