“Rapid prototyping”

In principle, there are two ways of approaching a task: developing towards the result by iteration or by trying to do the end result in one go. I’m a huge advocate of iteration, especially when it comes to learning something. For seasoned professionals, it may work, depending on personal temperament, to work in binges. (More about binge working in the section “deep work”.)
