Pathfinding in the TryAgain Map
Facing a stubborn challenge, resisting direct try-again, the trier may invoke the TryAgain template, which opens up three path-categories: breakdown, extension, and abstraction. The question is now: which path to choose. The template path-finding protocol is comprised off 'ever deeper exploration rounds'. It is a strategy where one first spends little effort on examining the three path options for the purpose of choosing the most helpful. One path-category is chosen and pursued. If after a pre-set exploration time this pursuit is not productive, then the trier exercise a second round of comparing the three path categories, choosing one, and pursuing it. If not productive then the trier repeats the previous step with more effort invested. These rounds continue until either the original goal is achieved, or the TryAgain effort is directed elsewhere.
