Hey buddy,

It's much simpler than that. The challenge says you can do it in just "one step". Bear in mind that when you pop() an item from a list, the value that you are "popping" from that list is returned, so you can pass it as the second parameter to insert().

the_list.insert(0, the_list.pop(3))
