4a2 - Avoid costly structuring traps
Structure must be earned!
But since you weren’t born yesterday, you might have a few ideas already. Just be careful not to over-structure too much too soon. So how should you add structure? In tiny tests. Tiny tests should:
- Be easy to undo.
- Take minimal effort to set up.
When you feel the urge to completely restructure.
Take a deep breath.
And figure out how to do a tiny test. Maybe it’s trying out a new MOC or tag or folder. Maybe it’s something else. Test it over a few weeks. Or months. See if it works. See how it feels. See if it scales. Give it some time.
Sometimes you might realize you actually don’t need to add anything!
