• Is this too broad? There are many kinds of puzzles, each require different methods. @OP What are you asking for? – Omega Krypton Dec 8 '18 at 11:21
• I just asked main strategy for solving any puzzle – sai sreekar Dec 8 '18 at 11:38
• You seem to be looking for something that does not exist, quite frankly. If there was a universal strategy that could solve literally any puzzle, this site would crumble overnight because every single question would be answerable with that exact strategy. – F1Krazy Dec 8 '18 at 13:37
• There is no main strategy, because there is no main puzzle. There are many puzzles. Many, many puzzles. You just gotta adapt. Some tags in Puzzling help you to enter the right mindset and know what to look for, so you can rely on them. People are different, and so each puzzle is bound to have its own unique flavour and/or style, hence why your question is rather broad, as it is focused on any puzzle. So I suggest that the best way to become a good puzzler, is to solve some; create some; and repeat :) – Mr Pie Dec 8 '18 at 13:37
