A few days ago, I heard a colleague of mine, say “we’d get it right the first time”. Soon as I heard that I wandered off into a introspecting things that I’d got right the first time. There was only one maybe two things I’d got right the first time around. On the other hand I can remember hundreds of things i got wrong the first time. There are very few things that even geniuses have got right the first time.
Who can say they started to walk the first time they tried? or learned to drive a car the first time? or got the right woman for themselves the first time? For 99% of the people the answers i suspect is NO, and i therefore cast a cross eyed look at people who make such statements.
Hey Einstien! Don’t spend too much time on getting it right, get a strawman going and then take things off it or add things to it to make it work.
