Share your experience, when you find yourself stuck with a problem ..

As a Software Programmer, I face challenge almost every day, where I have to find solution in best possible way, whether it may be code optimization or a bug or a algorithm but no solution even after working for 3-4 days or weeks, but suddenly something happens that provide you a solution

For e.g If have watched movie 3 idiots, then during the song, "All is well" where aamir khan was trying to invent a spy device. He was stuck with some logic, but suddenly while walking he got an idea.

Did that thing ever happen to you? If so then Please do share

This is part of development and bug fixing. I have faced the situation where I was stuck with bug for days and finally found that only few line of code changes actually required.
After finding solution, if feels total frustration but there is a lot of learning behind that. 😀

I've found that totally distracting oneself from the problem for some time (no matter how urgent it is) is the best way to free up your mind. Tell yourself that the problem at hand isn't the hardest of all. It also helps if you learn to identify problems as 'challenges'. Surprisingly, it's very tough to get into that framework of mind.
I had a problem while developing my mini-project in last semester. I was not able to upload in Linux server, and suddenly one day a thought struck my mind saying I can try changing permissions of SELinux. And it worked for me. Nd truly speaking it was a great moment of joy for me.
I know it was a small thing, but it felt great at that time.😀
