Break that down...

Yesterday i was given an award in the recognition program in office. Not a big deal actually. But if you are a small time developer like me with little expectations, it can be big.

I was all happy and spring-in-my-step and all. I have little expectations from life mostly. That makes me mostly a happy person.

So coming back to the award, the person who had nominated me was telling the group as to why he thought that I should get the award. (Jargon Alert!! Not that I know too many jargons, lets just pretend that I do )He was telling them that he was trying to host an flash application on a content management system and he didnt know how to do it and he didnt find reading meterial on that in any of the forums and all and that I helped him finish the task in 2 hours, quickly.

It is after this little talk that i realised the real reason for me being able to help him finish the task so soon. Well, he looked at it as hosting an appliction. I looked at it as displaying a webpage in another page....
(End Jargon Alert!!)

what am i coming to say, you ask??? Simple, break the big problem into smaller ones and begin by solving the smallest first. Helps, really does!

First congrats, award/recognition is something irrespective of scope. Secondly, you make it sound very simple. In reality, at least in my reality, i often find the biggest problems often don't break at all or even if they do, they break into so many smaller problems that i begin to wonder if it is all worth it. Take the above sentence, for instance. Maybe you should post a tutorial on breaking down problems?
