My advice to everyone in general:
The only way you can discover new things and learn is by asking questions.
I don’t believe there is such a thing as a dumb question.
Yes, there as “simple” or “basic” questions, but I’ve learnt through the years that these can also be the most important questions. Why? Because people often “assume” the answer should be known so the question is not asked and the topic is not covered. But not knowing answers to the simple questions means we don’t understand the foundations of what we are doing.
Some people are not going to react well to being asked questions, whether the the question is simple or complex.
People like that are ignorant.
Don’t let other people’s ignorance stop you. Keep asking questions until you have answers and understanding.
Asking questions is the simplest and easiest key to success.
