The disadvantages of the trial and error method are obvious. Firstly, there may be too many options for simply trying each of them. Scientists have calculated that a simple everyday task can contain from 30 to 100 elements. What to speak of more complex assignments whose solving can dramatically change a life. The global life goals that you set for yourself can contain hundreds of details that need to be considered. A simple listing of the options can take a lot of time. Therefore, it is not a fact that you have enough patience to complete what you commence by trying each option and failing.

Hi, Oleks. Good try!

The disadvantages of the trial and error method are obvious. Firstly, there may be too many options for simply trying each of them to try. Scientists have calculated that a simple everyday task can contain from 30 to 100 elements. What to speak of not to mention more complex assignments whose solving can dramatically change a life be life-changing. The global life goals that you set for yourself can contain hundreds of details that need to be considered. Preparing a simple listing of the options can take a lot of time. Therefore, it is not a fact that you have enough patience should be patient enough to complete what you commence by trying each option and failing.

Hi Oleks,

I agree with corrections as stated above by Aliakbar. Condensing the sentencing helps to make it more clear to the reader. 

What to speak of more complex assignments whose solving can dramatically change a life. Depending on the individual, more complex assignments can be life changing. (Maybe this sentence)

Making simple listing list of the options can take a lot of time.

Great work!

Hi Oleks,

You have hit a nail on the head! Each major task you set yourself often contains hundreds of (what I call) smaller subtasks, which can be equally challenging to solve!

This shows how important and key a careful, detailed plan is.

With regards to your English, Aliakbar and Faye have both done a great job of evaluating it!

I just have some comments

1. more complex assignments whose solving can dramatically change a life. - ("whose" is the possessive form of the pronoun "who" and is normally used when speaking about a person owning or having something. I would therefore write this phrase a different way)..."not to mention more complex assignments/tasks which, when solved, can be life-changing"

2. The global life goals - this is not grammatically wrong. However, it seems a bit strange to include the word "global" in this phrase. Could you explain why you need the word global? I am curious.  I would simply say "The life goals..."

Hi Ed! Thank you! I am glad you liked it. About word "global" I meant "global goals" and "life goals" all rolled into one.

So when you say "global goals" do you mean the goals we should (collectively) have for all humanity?

No, I meant goals that is global for me, in other word, large-scale, encompassing the whole of me.

Ah, I see! In that case, I would say something like "the ultimate goals in life". The word global (in my opinion) has worldwide connotations.

I think you are right. From the word "globus". "Ultimate" is more relevant in this connotation.
