time management videos - weekly producitivty tip #21 - Focus on fixing the root cause, not the symptomsWhen trying to solve a problem, try to find it’s the root cause of it and fix that instead one of the symptoms.

Even if  fixing the root cause may be more complicated than just the symptoms, it is always the best way to proceed: You are going to save more time in the long run when you tackle the root cause.
