It is important to avoid jumping to conclusions when mental mistakes annoy us. We can’t solve the equation without knowing all the variables. Settling on one explanation with some of the facts is never as effective as finding the one explanation that is supported by all of the facts. Replacing assumptions with questions is always a better use of our imagination when we are problem-solving. Getting the right answer is always better than getting the quick answer that only resolves our need for a resolution that fits what we have already decided.
