Be the Rubber Duck
There is a common problem solving technique in programming, called “Rubber Duck Debugging”. This technique is used when a programmer is stuck on a problem with their program, and their usual approach to debugging is not yielding results. Once this point has been reached, the programmer will explain out loud to a rubber duck what their problem is. Just the sheer act of verbally explaining your problem helps to categorize your problem and serve to give you a better understanding of what exactly you’re trying to tackle.
