Don’t be afraid of making adjustments
Since when did the first idea or version of a product end up being the version that went the distance? Proto-types need to be tinkered with and refined over time to create an end product that the market will be satisfied with. One innovative way that Jason adjusted and refined his planner was by conducting focus groups. Using the feedback from the focus groups, Jason was able to make meaningful adjustments to his product based on real-world feedback from users.
