Antecedent of the solution-focused approach

Solution-focused consultant Klaus Schenck from Germany send me this quote:

"Man shall make use of those things as far as they help him towards his goal, and let go of them as far as they inhibit this."

- Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the jesuit order, around 1530

As Klaus says: this sounds much like the solution-focused principle "if it works, do more of it, if not, let go of it (and do something else instead)".
