If you have an idea on how to get a task done try asking "Can I get a little more direction on this task?" Then when your mentor/senior dev reponds or jumps on the call you can tell them your idea of getting it done and get either approval or corrections. I do that all the time! I'll be like: "ya I understand" and then later be like "oh wait I need more info" haha. It's really no big deal. No company wants you to NOT ask questions. Just have a better question than "I don't understand".

This is just a message and a brief instruction for beginners (and, as it turned out later, not only) who are too afraid to say these simple words in their infancy.

Yes, you can paraphrase it however you like ;)

The main point of my entire article is to stop being afraid to ask questions if the task is not 101% clear. Since it doesn't help you or your team.
