Howard’s Inner Circle, No. 17: Seeking Solutions
I loved doing mazes as a child and I thought I had an original approach to solving them. A couple of years ago I planned to use a maze as an opening exercise for conference attendees. After giving them time to solve the maze, I explained my theory which I had held onto for over forty years and no longer believe. You see, prior to my presentation, Justin, the art director of my company had looked at the maze and said the best way to solve that particular puzzle was neither from the start nor the finish, but to begin from the middle. He was right!
