I came across this quote by Albert Einstein mentioned in a couple of places in the same week, and it struck my how applicable it is to Appreciative Inquiry. If you’re looking only at analysing the causes of problems, you’re going to miss the factors that make for success.

Unlike most of the Einstein quotes floating around on the internet, this is something he actually said – it comes from A Life In Physics by Bethe, Dirac and Heisenberg https://books.google.fr/books?id=c2kGCwAAQBAJ&pg=PA40

Also applicable, I would think, to NLP, coaching, positive psychology, Positive Deviance, and Safety II.
