I was think of using ajax to pass data from javascript to php because of some validation to my multiple checkbox, then before i go home the idea hit me to just use validation in php with some basic variable manipulation and if else, i just wasted 2 hours of searching just to arrived at a basic solution, i think it's much better to think before you code about what you want to do,but when i open my text editor i get distracted a lot.

    I used to spend, but in The Office or with friends, every time I want to implement something new, I ask a colleague to sit next to me and judge my implementation (extreme programming), and the same, when we are Stuck on something

    @llhbc next time i'll ask a friend for advice, i really spend 2 hours thinking about something so basic

    @Cesar It may be that you think very broadly to solve the problem, divide it up to get a simple test, or a minimal entity and then communicate it with the rest of entities that solve the real problem

    @llhbc ok thanks for the advice, i'll always consider it when coding

    @Cesar But it's true, sometimes it's hard to focus on the user story

    @Cesar things like Scrum and tdd help a lot not to lose the main objective

    @Cesar You do not have to use tdd, but test, simply help

    You should validate on both the client AND the server. Client side validation helps the user spot mistakes, saving them time and a page load. Server side validation prevents bad data from getting into the DB.

    Sometimes doing anything to distract your brain for a bit will work wonders when you return to the problem. I step outside with a coworker and just talk about movies or whatever is on Netflix. Anything to reset my brain rut. Fire alarms work well too. And naps.
