A critical step to making great progress is to ship your ideas early in order to gather actionable feedback. Whether the idea you’re working on is a product or service, the sooner you get it into peoples’ hands, the quicker you’ll receive feedback, and the more valuable your idea will be to your users. When times are tough, keep creating value.
Consider the following questions when asking for feedback:
- What worked?
- What could be better?
- What is missing?
- Does it address your needs, challenges, and objectives?
Extra Credit: Think of three more questions to add to this list. Design the questions so that the answers will be actionable. Use the feedback to make your ideas better and more tailored toward your users’ needs.
