Plan, Do, Repeat

I tend to go on planning binges, where I over analyze situations and over plan. In many cases I donโ€™t even execute. Which makes these rabbit holes the most pathetic daydreams possible.

The concept of iterating as part of planning has helped me a lot. Over the years I keep trying to manifest it with some catchy habit goal:

  • Learn by Doing
  • Let the Error Happen
  • Motion & Action

But the point is the same: in thinking about solutions to a problem, the point diminishing returns arrives early one. You can afford a few wrong decisions in the same timeframe and end up with a much better (informed) solution.
