A lick of paint, mostly. Or at least that is what most people try when faced with difficulty. Pull out the paintbrush and metaphysically start slapping on the paint. This is the modern way. Unfortunately, this will always wear off.
Better off trying to unravel the puzzle yourself. If you succeed in solving it, so much the better. If you don't so what? We fail a lot more than we succeed. All of us. No matter how strong, No matter how weak.
We are all trapped together in this random crapshoot called life.
If you can look yourself in the mirror, shake your head, shrug your shoulders, and go out to face another day keeping your failure or success to yourself, this is always the best result. Even if you have found the solution, it has found you magically, or, as is often the case, there is none at all.
