Figuring it out
It’s so nice when you figure something out. It doesn’t matter if it’s a new technology, a hard problem, or a new way to explain something. Once you have the solution you can rely on that solutions for future, similar problems.
Humans are great pattern matchers. By recognizing small similarities in simple problems we can solve more complex problems.
One of the difficult things is knowing which tools to use. Because we rely on our experience so heavily we may not be able to find a tool that fits the problem and end up using something that is a poor fit. Will the problem get solved? Probably. Will it be the best solution? Likely not.
