I was just going through some heavy coding issues to do with some web code problems we’ve been experiencing with some projects and this issue has literally been bugging us for about 5 months.
I’ve spent the last 3hours working on this with a firm mind to have it sorted and fixed. When we get into the problem solving on the code level, you have to be extremely logical and also non-assumptive.
I tell my programmer this all the time, we must start from a position of not assuming anything until we can prove it. Anyways, without going into the nitty gritty, the problem has been fixed and the root cause was a small nondescript file which had only one line of code in it, that seemingly wasn’t related to the problem.
Just by removing the file, the entire headache was fixed and I wonder how many times this has happened before. This wasn’t the first time and won’t be the last time a problem like this comes up.
It occurred to me that life works in exactly the same way.
There are so many problems in our lives that we don’t know how to fix, but if you spent just a little bit of extremely focused time on that problem in your life, you can most of the time find the solution.
Often that solution is a quick fix too! The problem and big difference between coding and life is that with code, nothing will work until that small problem is fixed. It essentially puts a complete stop to the programming because code is strictly logical.
Humans on the other hand are strictly illogical and will carry on working with these little problems, sometimes completely unaware that they are even there.
That’s the big difference and it really shows when the vast majority of people simply don’t take any time to reflect and become more self aware of themselves and who they are.
I often meet people who are looking to improve their lives in one way or another. Though my story is somewhat inspiring, I always try to provide some simple solutions to their problems.
For the most part, it’s to do with the mindset and most problems stem from some sort of childhood issue that was buried deep many years ago.
I think what stops most people from self exploration is the fear of what they might have to face inside themselves. I admit, it’s not easy looking into oneself and admitting many wrongs from the past.
But without doing this, how do you hope to move forward?
