Permanent Solutions

Permanently fixing something involves putting the pain next to the person with power. Fixing it ourselves will only solve the problem temporarily until it recurs again, especially if we're not the one with the power to fix it permanently.

Pain is a useful, persistent reminder that a problem needs to be solved. Think about the last time we touched something hot; the action is immediate, and we don't touch that same hot thing again.

Put that hot thing next to the person in control, don't fix it for him, and we'll see the problem permanently fixed.
