Man with Hammer


If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.    ~ Abraham Maslow  ~

If we only have a hammer, we narrow our choices of what will help the hammer solve the problem.  We tend to notice things that are similar, even if they’re not exactly the same. That is part of human nature. If you have a hammer, you start seeing nails. If you had a screw driver, you start looking for things to screw up.  We group together that which is similar.  If we had a bat, we would look for a ball, as they go together.  This limits the solutions to our problem-solving skills, but it’s all we have to work with.
