Head in the sand

The problem with the “head in the sand” approach to problem resolution is that, even for the most expert protagonists, the problem generally tends to still be there when normal business resumes.

Ignoring problems may seem like an attractive way of avoiding having to deal with them but at best it’s only effective as a delaying tactic.  Often the delay achieves little more than to magnify the problem and increase the potential consequences.

However much we’d like to be able to wave a magic wand and make problems disappear, the only effective way of dealing with them is by dealing with them… worth remembering the next time you are tempted to look around for somewhere to hide.
