There is another way.
Don’t carry out your research by asking,

‘How about if we tried this? How about if we tried that?’

Instead, go in the opposite direction and ask,

‘What if we don’t do this? What if we don’t do that?’.

After 30 years of such efforts, I have managed to reduce my own labor essentially to just sowing seed and spreading straw.”
