To get from point A
to point B
Take a step in the general direction of point B. If you are not at point B yet, after a pause for thought, apply the algorithm again.
This works best when the direction chosen is aproximately toward your chosen destination. However anything within a 180 degree arc will work with some success.
Bear this technique in mind when tripping heavily. You don't need to know C or Java. Being able to stand up is a good start.
