Exhausting All Options
I’ll be honest, I hate it when people say there are no other options. When there’s a problem to solve, I see failed attempts as one step closer to a solution. There is always an answer, and it only takes perseverance to discover it.
That being said, there are rare situations when the problem is beyond your skills at the moment. Maybe that means learning something new, replacing a piece of equipment, or asking for help.
But before you reach out, push to grow your abilities. Tear things apart, scour the Internet, choose to fail over and over again in search for answers, and only when you’ve exhausted all options should you concede.
