Informed Intuition

Informed Intuition

I've always struggled to define how I make decisions. I've said things like lead with my gut, but back up with data. But that's not right. Using data you can research a story, but when you're making a decision, it's based on your experience and knowledge too. Marissa Mayer does a great job of explaining this in the Masters of Scale podcast. 

What it's called is Informed Intuition.

Just Launch It.

Just Launch It.

I am still afraid of launching. I have fear of rejection, fear of not good enough. But then I had an opportunity to launch a product I couldn't change anything with. It is what it is. So I put it out there, and people liked it! So what I learnt, is fuck it, launch it. If there is a need for it, people will tell you. If not, move on. Listen to your own damn advice: Launch early, launch often.
