What we know about teaching and learning validates experiential practice as a means to building understanding (in one’s self, in someone for whom you are responsible). If you want someone to understand something – whether it be entrepreneurship or a product or a service – don’t just tell them about the work but have them experience it, even if this experience is messy or leaves open loops.
You may want to provide something to your customer right away, but your customer may not be ready to receive it. Someone may have feedback for you, but if you’re in the middle of a stressful stretch of work, you might want to delay its delivery for a few days. Sometimes it’s your turn to use the road. Sometimes you have to hold off. What’s critical, for immediacy to flourish, is to resolve issues by thinking about eventualities before they happen. To work out solution, pass them around and test them in the real world. Get what you need, when you need it. Give others what they need, when they need it.
