Take time to analyse the problem

⁠When solving problems, dig at the roots instead of just hacking leaves.⁠

― Anthony J. D’Angelo

This quote doesn’t just apply to life as a Web Designer, but to life in general! ⁠

It’s so easy to get caught up in dealing with what’s immediately in front of you and not to take the time to step back. To really look at what needs to be done. 👀⁠

It’s easy to be eager to fix a problem and jump in feet first. ⁠Much better to take time to analyse the problem.

⁠I’ve found myself caught in a loop more times than I would care to admit, hacking at a bug trying to get it to work… 😖 Only to realise that by stopping, taking a breath and analysing the problem; a simpler, more elegant solution can be applied. 😌⁠

⁠A good reminder for work, and for life.⁠
