Killer Quickfix

We live in a culture of quickfix; we never tackle the real problem and solve it once and for all. We always look only at the symptoms and deal with them as if they were the only problem we have, completely failing to see the real issue at hand.

Got a problem at work? Look for a quick coverup for the bad smell, not the source of the stink. Got a weight problem? Starve yourself for a month, then go back to your bad eating habits and sedentary activity level.
Having relationship issues? Go look for a side fling, without confronting your issues and solving them, or even ending the relationship if it's not working anymore.

Quickfixes are what will kill us eventually, if they arent already started.

Why is it so hard for us to tackle real problems? When will we have the guts to look them in the eye, and tell them "I know you exist, I'm not afraid of you, I will figure you out"?
