We have an operational thought when we use a concrete problem for abstract thinking. We apply our concrete thinking to the concrete problem so we can improve or solve the concrete problem. In our concrete operational thought, we apply the abstract problem to concrete problems to see if the concrete problem is a good example for the solution.

To make sense of the concrete problem, we compare it to other problems we have encountered. Then we try to apply our abstract thinking to that problem in order to make a concrete solution. This is the process of applying to concrete problems.

The abstract problem is the problem that is most often encountered when trying to solve a concrete problem. We apply our concrete thinking to the concrete problem so that it can be solved by applying the abstract problem to the concrete problem. Or we may apply our abstract thinking to the concrete problem so that it can be solved by applying the abstract problem to the concrete problem, and then look at the concrete problem using its abstract thinking.

You have concrete problems. You have concrete things to do. You have concrete decisions to make. You have concrete tasks to accomplish. You have concrete goals to achieve. And so on. Abstract thinking can be applied to a concrete problem, but it’s not applied to the concrete problem until it needs to be. When the abstract problem is solved, you can use your concrete thinking to apply to the concrete problem.

This is why it’s so important to have concrete problems. Problems require concrete thinking, so it’s important to have concrete problems. But you also need to have concrete tasks. It’s important to have concrete goals. And it’s important to have concrete actions. So if you think about concrete problems, you should then have concrete tasks, concrete goals, concrete actions for each of them, and then you can apply your concrete thinking to the concrete problem.

Now that you have concrete problems, concrete tasks, concrete goals, and concrete actions, then you can apply your concrete thinking to the real world. The real world isn’t always concrete, but it has concrete problems, concrete tasks, concrete goals, and concrete actions. But these concrete problems, tasks, goals, and actions aren’t always concrete. For example, a concrete problem might be, “I need to drive a truck.

Truck driving is one of the most difficult jobs on earth. A person with a high-level sense of abstraction (like me) might say to himself, “There’s only one person in the world who knows how to drive a truck. And that person is me.” But you can’t take that to a truck driving task. You can’t even apply to a concrete problem which requires driving a truck.

And so concrete tasks are a bit like a race. A person with a high-level sense of abstraction could make a concrete plan and then drive to the finish line.

This is one of the reasons why I love building games. Its the same reason why I love building houses. Sure, they’re not as easy as building houses, but there are always a lot of things to think about.

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
