Are Street Performers Better Than You at Prototyping?

Street performers probably have a better prototyping workflow than you do. In the post, Become a God of Learning Your Trade on Zenhabits by Leo Babauta, he states to get better at what you do you should “do it in public and get immediate feedback.” He explains that street performers playing for money have this process dialed in. Try something, get feedback, adjust and repeat. If you don’t do this, you don’t get paid. It’s that simple.

For building websites and web applications, it seems it should be more complicated, but it isn’t. Applying the ideas in Leo’s article to web prototyping lines up with one of our favorite ProtoShare mantras: share early and share often. Your projects will get better when you try something and get feedback on it right away.

Go read the whole article. Leo relates his own experience with building Zenhabits (which has lots of great content) and applying the rule of “do it in public and get immediate feedback.” Definitely something we can all do more of in our own projects.
