The Right Answer

	     By the time the average person finishes college
	     he or she will have taken over 2,600 tests,
	     quizzes and exams. The 'right answer' approach
	     becomes deeply ingrained in our thinking. This
	     may be fine for some mathematical problems,
	     where there is in fact only one right answer.
	     The difficulty is that most of life isn't that
	     way. Life is ambiguous; there are many right
	     answers - all depending on what you are looking
	     for. But if you think there is only one right
	     answer, then you'll stop looking as soon as you
	     find one.
