Opportunities, not problems

I've been wondering about replacing a 'problem-solving' frame with a 'opportunities' frame as we #design. This principle is embedded in #indigenous approaches (example Whānau Ora), and increasingly, I'm seeing that in how *life* works. Trees, for instance, don't grow because they want to solve problems. They grow because they are full of potential, and are expressing that potential by working towards the opportunity of life. On the way, they overcome problems (sometimes not) that get in the way. The focus, however, is the opportunity, not the problem to be solved. What would it look like if we thought of ourselves as opportunity-seekers rather than problem-solvers? What might that change?
