Trial and Error

Trial and Error seems to be the only way to succeed at doing anything. Sometimes I have these grandiose ideas of what I want to do with these gigantic products that need to be built. Most of the time, I need to build a stupid version of that product. Once I built a stupid version, and it is out there with the world watching, I find all the ways it is wrong and iterate to fix the issues.

However, if I start with a grand big idea, there is so much work ahead of me I never start. By making things small, and making Trial and Error a feature, I can find a more optimal path-finding algorithm as our trials are small, and our errors allow us to learn quickly.
