The Spaghetti Strategy

Strategy

“Let’s throw it against the wall and see what sticks.”

Great idea. If you have a lot of time and a lot of spaghetti.

Experimentation is critical, but it does not replace analytical thinking, research and problem solving. You don’t start with throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks…

Unless you have unlimited resources, consider saving your pasta. Critical thinking and asking yourself the tough questions about your own ideas is never as fun or interesting as just running out and trying to make something happen. But by learning to take the time up front, you’ll become much better at selecting the right walls to start aiming for, and more will stick. Bon appetite.
