    Cool More about "on the way"

    Let me ask you if would it be correct to say: "I'm solving the doubts on the way" in the the sense of "I'm solving the doubts improvising, without any previous preparation or alert I'd be in a circumstance pressing me to solve them."

    In other words, could "on the way" work for "improvising", "doing things without having time to face them calmly?"

    Thanks you.

    One does not 'solve' 'doubts'.
    "I am solving the problems as I go/as they arise."
    "I am dealing with the problems as I go/as they arise."

    OK, thanks for the correction, but, anyway still my doubt. Let's change doubts for problems, or for "doing things" whatever they are. Is it possible, then, to say in English "I'm doing this or that on the way" in the the sense of "I'm doing this or that improvising, without any previous preparation or alert that I'd be in a circumstance pressing me to solve them."

    Much thankful for your attention.
