I don’t usually write things down. But 2 hours into debugging, I get really confused:

Illustration of a frazzled-looking stick figure with curly hair.

person (thinking): wait, what did that error message I saw 2 hours ago say again exactly??

Keeping a document with notes makes it WAY easier to stay on track. It might contain: - specific inputs I tried - error messages I saw - stack overflow URLs

The log makes it easier to ask for help later if needed!
