STEP 1: The problem.
You have a problem.
Don't tell me you don't have problems.
Everyone has problems.
Determine what your biggest problem is.
Don't have a big problem? Too scared to admit it?
You can start smaller- How about a small problem?
How about something that concerns/bothers/confuses you today/this week/recently?
Come up with a bunch of keywords that describe your problem.

STEP 2: Ask google for solution to your problem.
Google your question using ALL the possible keyword combinations that your problem relates to or has in it.
See if anyone already has a similar problem or has already resolved it.
Take 3 hours if you must.
Finding correct information can get tough, especially if it is obscure, hidden, answered incorrectly or has conflicting answers.
Answers without proper sources or evidence are generally incorrect and should be disregarded.

If there are too many conflicting solutions and opposing answers and you're not sure which is correct,
Use the principle of "Occam razor" to figure out the most correct answer.
"Simpler explanations are, other things being equal, generally better than more complex ones.
Among competing hypotheses, the one that makes the fewest assumptions should be selected."
Occam's razor is used in medicine when there are many explanations for symptoms and the simplest diagnosis usually is the correct one.
If a child has a runny nose, they probably have the common cold instead of a rare birth defect.
If a tree suddenly feel down in a forest - wind was responsible, not a wizard.

STEP 3: Report results
How successful were you?
Were you able to solve your problem?

This is going in my list of religions invented by Alexiuss, along with the Church of Captain and that lemonade-cult-thingy. Even though I don't have a list of religions invented by Alexiuss. I'll make one eventually.

This sounds like your default approach to any IT problem xD
(as long as you're not making something new and unique)

i see the logic in this, it's an interesting theory you have there.

i've kinda learned to work out my own solutions because i work with problems people haven't solved yet. that's really all there is to it. i'd say people are a lot more engaging if they possess the mindset to work out their own problems.

it's VERY HARD to find people that do it when you're recruiting also, but it's exactly those people you need to do interesting stuff.

Это надо говорить каждому, кто говорит мне "ДА ТЫ ГЕНИЙ, КАК???" когда я ставлю программу на чей-то ноут или помогаю "найти картинку с серым котом очень надо не знаю что делать ужас просто" =___0. Я себя дебилом чувствую, когда иду в гугл и пишу "серый кот". и кидаю ссылку спросившему :D

There are very specific mathematical and statistical constants that define the world.

Using Occam's razor, logic, % of approval of most respected scientists, and probability of realism you can reduce answers to a few or to a single most logical, most probable, and most statistically likely answer and this answer will be the most correct and most helpful in life.
