If it is something you quickly want feedback on I like to iterate, as with agile project management. If the requirements/goal are more static, waterfall may be the appropriate technique.
Life is about taking risks (another mantra I live by). It shouldn’t be everyday, but there are certainly important times to do it… that is, if you want to reap the benefits. Maybe it’s a risk over love… or going to school… or living in a new place… or in my case today, it’s quitting your job with the goal of getting an even better one.
