A principled way to solve problems: Constantly ask yourself what you are trying to do.

  1. Ask yourself what’s the problem you’re trying to solve
  2. Be sure that you understand it deeply, and that you at least have an idea of how would you know that the problem is solved.
  3. Propose a course of action
  4. Remind yourself: what I was trying to do?
  5. Ask the question: does doing this solve my problem?
  6. Doing this should transform your problem into your imaginary solved problem (that’s why it’s important to have an idea of how does the solved problem looks like)
  7. Do I need to do this? All actions should be needed for solving the problem. Any action that is not obviously needed, should be discarded
