Know every corner of your problem space before jumping into the solution space.

Thoughts on the PTOTD

The problem space is essentially a series of incrementally complex statement that attempt to define the problem. With each increment, the complexity grows. You have to know the causes and the effects for that particular statement before you dive into the nitty gritty.

Knowing your problem space makes all the difference when evaluating solutions. A good problem-solution fit requires that you understand how the solution can be a cause of future problems.
