I Would Spend 55 Minutes Defining the Problem and then Five Minutes Solving It

Albert Einstein? A Yale Professor? Apocryphal?

quote on problem solving

If I had only one hour to save the world, I would spend fifty-five minutes defining the problem, and only five minutes finding the solution. If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions. Given one hour to save the planet, I would spend 59 minutes understanding the problem and one minute resolving it.

Because there are so many different variations I do not have much confidence that this was actually said by the acclaimed genius. Would you please explore this expression?

Quote Investigator: There is no substantive evidence that Einstein ever made a remark of this type. It is not listed in the comprehensive collection “The Ultimate Quotable Einstein” from Princeton University Press. [1] 2010, The Ultimate Quotable Einstein, Edited by Alice Calaprice, Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey. (Examined on paper)

The earliest relevant evidence located by QI appeared in a 1966 collection of articles about manufacturing. An employee of the Stainless Processing Company named William H. Markle wrote a piece titled “The Manufacturing Manager’s Skills” which included a strong match for the saying under investigation. However, the words were credited to an unnamed professor at Yale University and not to Einstein. Also, the hour was split into 40 vs. 20 minutes instead of 55 vs. 5 minutes. Boldface has been added to excerpts: [2] 1966, The Manufacturing Man and His Job by Robert E. Finley and Henry R. Ziobro, “The Manufacturing Manager’s Skills” by William H. Markle (Vice President, Stainless Processing … Continue reading

Some years ago the head of the Industrial Engineering Department of Yale University said, “If I had only one hour to solve a problem, I would spend up to two-thirds of that hour in attempting to define what the problem is.”

Albert Einstein died in 1955, and by 1973 a version of the saying had been assigned to him in an article in the journal “Invention Intelligence” based in New Delhi, India. Interestingly, the hour was split into three parts instead of two. No supporting data for the attribution was given: [3] 1973 August, Invention Intelligence, Volume 8, Number 8, Can I Learn to Invent? by A. M. Elijah (Director, Institute of Creative Development, Poona-1), Start Page 294, Quote Page 297, Issued by the … Continue reading

Often the problem as given is misleading, and you have to work through a mass of data to define the real problem. Often this step consumes more time than deriving the solution. Einstein said: “If I were given an hour in which to do a problem upon which my life depended, I would spend 40 minutes studying it, 15 minutes reviewing it and 5 minutes solving it.”

Here are additional selected citations in chronological order.

In 1986 an instance of the saying was attributed to Einstein in a paper published in the conference proceedings of the International Association of Quality Circles. The hour was split into two parts. The phrase “Einstein is reported to have said” suggested that the author did not have much confidence in the ascription: [4] 1986, Educational Transactions of the 8th Annual IAQC Spring Conference, “Creatively Managing Your Mind” by Robert J. Greene (IBM Corporation), Start Page 62, Quote Page 68, Published by … Continue reading

Einstein is reported to have said that if he only had one hour to solve a problem he would spend 55 minutes defining the problem and the remaining 5 minutes solving it routinely.

In 1989 “The Practical Guide to Joint Ventures and Corporate Alliances” was published, and the author presented an instance attributed to Einstein. This version once again split the hour into three parts: [5] 1989, The Practical Guide to Joint Ventures and Corporate alliances by Robert Porter Lynch, Chapter 13: Problems and Pitfalls in Strategy and Structure, Quote Page 225 and 226, John Wiley & Sons, … Continue reading

Albert Einstein was once asked how he would spend his time if he was given a problem upon which his life depended and he had only one hour to solve it. He responded by saying he would spend 30 minutes analyzing the problem, 20 minutes planning the solution, and ten minutes executing the solution. For those overly prone to jumping into action, a bit more planning would be worthwhile.

Skilled researchers Jesse Mazer and Barry Popik have also examined this saying and some of their findings have been incorporated in the next section. [6] Website: Wikiquote: Discussion Page, Webpage Title: Talk: Albert Einstein, Discussion topic: If I had only one hour to save the world, I would spend fifty-five minutes defining the problem, and only … Continue reading [7] Website: The Big Apple, Article title: “If I had an hour to solve a problem, I would spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem”, Date on website: May 06, 2014, Website description: Etymological … Continue reading

In 1995 the book “Creative Problem Solving and Opportunity Finding” printed an instance of the expression in which Einstein was called upon to save the world: [8] 1995, Creative Problem Solving and Opportunity Finding by J. Daniel Couger, Chapter 6, Quote Page 178, Boyd & Fraser Publishing Company, Danvers, Massachusetts, A division of International … Continue reading

Dewey believed that a problem well stated was half solved. Albert Einstein was even more emphatic about the importance of the definition of the problem. He was once asked: “If you have one hour to save the world, how would you spend that hour?” He replied, “I would spend 55 minutes defining the problem and then five minutes solving it.”

In March 1995 “The Orange County Register” newspaper of California printed the remarks of a management professor at McMasters University in Ontario who credited Einstein with an instance of the saying: [9] 1995 March 19, The Orange County Register, Section: Business, “BUSINESS FIND A NEW TOOL: CREATIVITY – STRATEGIES: More companies are encouraging creative thinking in order to remain … Continue reading

While brainstorming and problem solving are important, it’s equally critical to pinpoint the exact problem, Basadur said. “When Einstein was asked how he would save the world in one hour, he said he’d spend 55 minutes defining the problem and five minutes solving it,” Basadur said.

A 2012 book about the talents needed by workers in the robotic age presented a dramatic scenario for the time limit and suggested that Einstein delivered his remarks during an interview: [10] 2012, Metaskills: Five Talents for the Robotic Age by Marty Neumeier, Unnumbered page, Published by New Riders, an imprint of Peachpit, a division of Pearson Education. (Google Books Preview)

In another interview he said that if he knew a fiery comet was certain to destroy the earth in an hour , and it was his job to head it off, he would spend the first fifty-five minutes defining the problem and the last five minutes solving it.

An interesting analogous statement has been spuriously attributed to another eminent person. The following remark about preparing to perform a task is usually assigned to Abraham Lincoln. An examination of its provenance is available by following this link :

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.

In conclusion, currently there is no known substantive support for the claim that Albert Einstein made one of these remarks. The earliest evidence points to an unknown academic at Yale University who may have made the statement given in the 1966 citation. The popular expression has been evolving for decades leading to a creative efflorescence of inaccuracies.

(Myriad thanks to John McChesney-Young for obtaining scans of the important 1973 citation. Great thanks to Don MacDonald and the librarians of the Harvard Business School for obtaining scans of the key 1986 citation. Many thanks to Barry Popik whose previous research and query led QI to formulate this question and perform this exploration. Special thanks to Jesse Mazer for his valuable work tracing Einstein attributions at Wikiquote.)

Update History: On June 20, 2014 the 1973 citation was moved from the appendix into the main body of the article. This movement occurred after the citation had been verified with scans.

15 Quotes on Problem Solving from Inspirational Leaders

Posted on August 9, 2014 by Yvonne I. Wilson in Quotes // 2 Comments

quote on problem solving

Everywhere we turn these days there are problems. It seems like we don’t have to go further than our living rooms to realize that. At the push of a button, the overwhelming, and often times glaring images and sounds are right there and it’s just hard for anyone to ignore.

The problems are getting more complicated by the minute. The strategies that were used to solve them yesterday, seems amateur when measured against the problems themselves and what it’s really going to take to get them solved today.

In the midst of it all, I would still say there is hope. And today we can be encouraged and inspired by words of wisdom from great men who no doubt have had problems and challenges of their own and who have recorded their mark in history of how to approach the problems without losing courage.

1.) “When a problem comes along, study it until you are completely knowledgeable. Then find out that weak spot, break the problem apart, and the rest will be easy.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale

2.) “How you think about a problem is more important than the problem itself – so always think positively.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale

3.) “A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them and strong enough to correct them.”  ~ John C. Maxwell

4.) “A leader lives with people to know their problems. A leader lives with God in order to solve them.” ~ John C. Maxwell

5.) “In fact, it is only through the New Testament that we can learn just what Christian faith is…Open your Bible at any page you like, there is nothing about solving religious problems. Bible testifies that God exists and that He revealed Himself through Jesus Christ. It shows too that the man who lives without God is not living right.” ~ Wilhelm Busch

6.) “Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.” ~ John F. Kennedy

7.) “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” ~ Philippians 4:13 New King James Version [NKJV]

8.) “The way to solve the problems in your life is to open your heart to others and to think differently. This has better result and brings more peace and happiness in your life, especially ultimate happiness that you will experience forever and that you can give to everyone who is suffering and to everyone who needs your help.” ~ Lama Zopa Rinpoche

9.) “No problem is insurmountable. With a little courage, teamwork and determination a person can overcome anything.’ ~ B. Dodge

10.) “One of the true tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.” ~ Arnold Glasgow

11.) The bottom line is that if you become a master at handling problems and overcoming obstacles, what can stop you from success? The answer is nothing! And if nothing can stop you, you become unstoppable! ~ T. Hary Eker

12.) “The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities, We need men who can dream of things that never were.” ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy

13.) “Through money or power you cannot solve all problems. The problem in the human heart must be solved first.” ~ Dalai Lama

14.) “We shall find the answer when we examine the problem, the problem is never apart from the answer. The problem IS the answer, understanding the problem dissolves the problem.” ~ Bruce Lee

15.)”Have you got a problem? Do what you can where you are with what you’ve got.” ~ Theodore Rooesvelt

Hopefully you have enjoyed these quotes enough to share this post with someone else so that they too can be inspired and encouraged through their own difficult circumstances today.

As always, I would love to hear from you.

Which quote inspired you the most? Do you think today’s problems are more man-made or simply, bible prophesy being fulfilled in our times?
