The video may seem ridiculous however many people face a problem in the same manner. If you're stuck, don't just stand there try something. What do you have to lose? If you hit a way try another approach. I used to be one of these people when it came to certain things. Once I broke through this mindset things opened up for me. So if you hit a dead end try a different direction. If you had to get home via unknown roads would you just sit at a dead end saying you couldn't do it or would you go back and try another? Use that same mindset when things get difficult in other situations.
