I wrote a small post on my blog about searching in a web search engine before you ask for help or get too far into a project.
Is searching something that you do? Or do you skip this step? Just kind of curious other peoples thought process on getting started in something.
I just talk to a decent amount of people that just take a small step (I want to make x) and immediately ask for help. It seems lazy and not helpful for the future. This is sort of a simplistic version of Kevin's too much help stunting your growth thread I suppose.
