Making progress with assumptions

April 7, 2016

Working on some early-stage wireframes recently I came to a crossroad – choose to skip over some pieces where I don’t have full information yet, or make a couple assumptions and take a stab at it.

I took a stab at it. It won’t all be right but it let me keep going, work some stuff out that I’d have needed to do anyway, test the logic. I learned more, tossed some stuff out the window, and got some new questions. You’re welcome team (I ask a lot of questions).

I’ve found it’s better to push forward instead of waiting*. The faster you can rule stuff out the closer you are to getting where you want to go. It comes down to doing vs. not doing. You’ll get the clarity you need later, and if not, well you can test.
