Stuck. Frustrated. Banging your head on the table. We’ve all been there.
Getting unstuck is often a matter of getting perspective.
The first step to rethinking a problem is taking a step back and asking what you’re really trying to accomplish.
Do you really care about building that feature, or are you simply trying to plug a particular hole in your business? How else could you solve that problem? How do others with similar problems approach this?
The best teams build in checkpoints for this question based on momentum. If you’re slowing down when you should be speeding up, don’t be afraid to rethink.
