"Beings are numberless, I vow to free them;
Delusions are inexhaustible, I vow to end them;
Dharma gates are boundless, I vow to enter them;
The Buddha way is unsurpassable, I vow to attain it."
Interestingly, problem-focused thinking (which rarely works) is about trying to quickly, definitively fix what's perceived as being broken - eg eliminate poverty by "declaring war" on it. Solution-focused thinking (which does tend to work) is all about fostering small, incremental improvements.
