Solving the problem

leave a comment »

There are two ways, two kind of people those days how they approaching to solve the problem: those who start to solve the problem by pasting description of the error into favorite search browser and those who are first trying to check thinks they know and if they sure that everything they know about the environment of the problem is ok, then they are trying further ways. Both of those ways usually lead to the solution, but IMHO the first one, even if takes longer it let you better understand problem and the environment. When you are going for simple copy&past solutions you will not understand what happened that the problem occurred and in the same way probably you will fix single pain point and not the core reason of the problem. Is this mean that we never should use Google to find solution ? No, this is rather suggestion to try use your brain, knowledge and experience to check if you can solve the problem by yourself. This approach will skill you up and bring solution faster even if different error pop up.

happy problem solving

You do not need to prove anything

leave a comment »

Today I decided to start running again. So far I believe this is the 5th time when I’m trying to do so and I believe/hope this time it is goanna be the one when I start doing so for a little bit longer then before. Someone can ask : what is the diffrence about this time comparing to the previous ones, and the secreat this time is that I promise to myself that I’ll not try to prove anything and just will do so for fun.
I think that this principle can and sometimes even should also apply to software development. A lot of times we are working hard to solve some problem, and we so busy proving to ourself that we can solve it in some particular way that we are wasting time woking in completly wrong direction, when in reality the solution is right around the corner. Moving foward is importent but now I think that even more importent is from time to time┬áto stop and just look around and make sure that we are on the right site of the street and be sure that we just didn’t get there becouse we were so blind to admit that we fallow this directoin to prove ourself this is the best way, when it wasn’t.
