Work fast and in the open

A common piece of advice I find myself giving to people is that time is your friend. If you quickly ship a draft and it’s meh you’ll get all the credit for shipping fast and then have an opportunity to work on the draft with stakeholders until it’s great.

On the other hand, you insist on doing your work in secret and only share something when it’s perfect then you’ll delay shipping, you’ll seem slow, and at the point you share if it isn’t ideal for your stakeholders then you’ll seem far worse at your job.

Speed (and shipping early) is your friend.
