Ask and answer

For every question that arises while you are trying to learn something new, do two things:

  1. Ask the question to an expert or mentor, or even just a friend or Google.
  2. Keep asking until you get the question answered. Do not allow multiple questions to build up and go unanswered.

Learning anything new that is slightly complicated takes time.

There is a solution to every problem, and you can find it. Even if it involves trying harder, or asking better or more questions, or finding a new mentor, the answer is out there.
