Telling someone that they should do something is very different from doing it yourself, and having them watch the result of your actions. Most individuals want to see a solution before they will commit to taking action. The problem with this mindset is that it is destined to send you in the wrong direction.
Problems are unique, and when one person achieves a solution by going in a specific direction, that does not mean that all others will achieve a similar solution if they simply "follow the leader." It would be well worth the effort if you took the time to examine the nuances of your circumstances, carefully weigh the pros and cons of each proposed resolution, and ultimately arrive at the solution that best fits your unique circumstances.
That is the manner in which sustainable solutions are achieved. That is the manner in which cost efficient solutions are achieved. That is the manner in which global solutions are achieved. That is the manner in which you should approach every problem, large or small.
