Another improvement of the trial and error method is the replacement of real actions with mental ones. This works well too. For example, you decide to make money on a blog. Imagine mentally what you need to do. You need to register on a hosting, pay for it, buy a domain, install a blog's engine, install plug-ins, create a design, compound a semantic core, add categories and tags, constantly write articles, do search engine optimization and promotion - and find the time for all this. Well him, this blog! Maybe you should think about something else?
So, having run through the whole process mentally, we can save months of hard work.
However, even the advanced trial and error method is yesterday. TRIZ technology, as a means of achieving the goal, offers better options. But more on that later.

Hi, Oleks! You are doing a great job. Keep it up!

Another improvement of the trial and error method is the replacement of real actions with the mental ones. This works well, [comma needed] too. For example, you decide to make money on a blog. Imagine mentally what you need to do. You need to register on a sign up for a hosting plan, pay for it, buy a domain name, install a blog's engine blog CMS, install the plug-ins, create a design, compound a semantic core create a central theme, add some categories and some tags, constantly write articles, do search engine optimization and promotion - and find the time for all this. Well him, this blog! that is it! Maybe you should think about something else? (What else can you think of?)

So, having run gone through the whole process mentally, we can save months of hard work.

However, even the advanced trial and error method is something of the past yesterday. TRIZ technology, as a means of achieving the goals, offers better options. But More on that later.

Hi Oleks,

This is another very good point. The vast majority of people rush into a task (like creating a design for a blog), get it wrong and have to start again. Eventually they get it right and successfully complete their task.

However it often takes them much longer than they would have wanted it to. They could save months of frustration, a lot time and a large amount of money if they carefully plan and do careful research on the task they set themselves.

I suppose a lot of people (myself included) are simply impatient and we just want to get stuck into the task we set ourselves, without carefully planning exactly how / the most effective way we can get it done.

Here are just a couple of my comments

1. install a blog's engine (As Aliakbar has pointed out, what you are referring to is the CMS) I would say "select a suitable CMS for your budget and needs" (Some Content management systems cost a fortune $$$, as they have so many advanced features, whereas others (like WordPress) are completely free to install. It's vital to spend time planning / carrying out research to find the best one for your budget and needs)

2. "hosting" pay attention to your pronunciation of this word. Listen to me saying it a few times.

Hi Ed! Thank you for your comment and audio! I have a blog on WordPress, but I’m no longer working on it because I’m tired of writing articles.

Hi Kealin! Thank you! Now I reread the text, and realized that yes, that sentence is redundant.
