It is almost true that there is nothing new under the sun.
Therefore, when faced with a challenge it is a perfectly reasonable tactic to look about and ask, “Has anyone run into the problem before?”
Chances are good that you’ll find at least one person, one site, one post that will shed some of that bright sun light on the challenge you face.
The next step is then to learn from that previous occurrence without feeling duty bound to repeat the actions the other person took to resolve their problem.
Learn from the path of the past, then chart your own course into the future.
Why not try?
