Being Wrong Quickly
Whatever the situation is … try to stick with this principle.
Being wrong quickly is better than (assumably) being right slowly.
Because this is a nasty moment when almost everything just stops. Waiting for a decision to be made. Many things are under reviewed. The other things are being made to perfection. All sources of slowness.
And almost every time, slowness creates more damage than we think.
And almost every time, perfection is just a fantasy.
Whatever it is, don’t just think. Whatever it is, don’t hold it for too long. A contract, a manual, a management presentation, a software spec, even the software itself.
We have only three months, don’t spend the first two working quietly to find out later that what we understood was completely incorrect. By then we have only a month left to fix it.
Fail fast can still be used. It is not outdated.
Hence, if you cannot do it correctly and quickly. Choose to do it incorrectly but quickly. Not the other way around.
Thinking and writing are the things I like. Sharing is what I love. Because of them, I write everyday to share stories from my thoughts and experiences, from the future I see and believe in. Everything I use to build Inthentic a better home. A home of people who want to do good things and give back. A home that is a small starting point of changes for a better society. I am proud of what I am doing. And even prouder to know that I am not doing it alone.
