Future State vs. Present Reality
Compare your desired state to your current state.
Imagine a desired future state where the problem doesn’t exist (i.e. your problem has already been solved).

Step 1: List as many 'future state' factors as you can think of:
Step 3: What are the similar factors between the future state list and the current state list?
Step 4: What are the common themes or patterns between the two lists?
Step 5: What are the differences?
