The Obvious Solution

I got stuck on a coding problem, a few hours back. As I kept using my mind to think about complex solutions to solve the problem, the problem seemed to go further away.

It wasn't until I slowed down on the thinking part that the most obvious and simple solution to the problem popped up into my head.

Voila! 5 mins later, the problem was solved.

Sometimes, the answer to most of our questions lies right in front of us. We look far away instead of looking what's there in front of us.

Start with the most obvious solutions and if that doesn't fit, work your way out to a better one.

Start simple.

Most of the times, the most obvious solution to a problem is the one we tend to ignore in the first place.
