Are you solving the right problems?
Have you or your colleagues ever worked hard on something, only to find out you were focusing on the wrong problem entirely? Most people have. In a survey, 85 percent of companies said they often struggle to solve the right problems.
The consequences are severe: Leaders fight the wrong strategic battles. Teams spend their energy on low-impact work. Startups build products that nobody wants. Organizations implement “solutions” that somehow make things worse, not better. Everywhere you look, the waste is staggering.
Shed some light on one of history’s darkest periods.

We’ve been building and making things ever since we stumbled out of paradise. Some of those things are incredible continuations of God’s creation, while others are nothing but ambitious catastrophes. We continue making, says Russell Rathbun, but we’ve lost ourselves in the process.
So how do we find ourselves again-rebuild our connections to each other, the earth, maybe even God? In search of an answer, Rathbun drives cross-country to the Salton Sea and takes a trip to China’s Great Wall, interspersing his traveling revelations with engaging musings on Madame Mao’s Gang of Four, Grandpa Webb’s family secret, the Great Flood, and the Tower of Babel, and a host of other subjects that grab his attention.
Quantum physicist, New York Times best-selling author, and BBC host Jim Al-Khalili offers a fascinating and illuminating look at what physics reveals about the world.
Al-Khalili begins by introducing the fundamental concepts of space, time, energy, and matter, and then describes the three pillars of modern physics – quantum theory, relativity, and thermodynamics – showing how all three must come together if we are ever to have a full understanding of reality. Using wonderful examples and thought-provoking analogies, Al-Khalili illuminates the physics of the extreme cosmic and quantum scales, the speculative frontiers of the field, and the physics that underpins our everyday experiences and technologies, bringing the listener up to speed with the biggest ideas in physics in just a few sittings. Physics is revealed as an intrepid human quest for ever more foundational principles that accurately explain the natural world we see around us, an undertaking guided by core values such as honesty and doubt. The knowledge discovered by physics both empowers and humbles us, and still, physics continues to delve valiantly into the unknown.
