Talk to the Duck
When confronted with a problem, don’t ask the person next to you for help right away, he’s probably doing something important as well!
Instead, first tell the duck about it - out loud. If you don’t get to a solution, start explaining your problem in more and more detail until it hits you. If the mere explanation led to a solution, you avoid unwillingly turning your colleague into a CardboardProgrammer.
