Look for rabbit holes

  • Finding solutions are usually a fast-moving, fast-paced process. It might not be a 'deeper' exploration, but a 'broader'.

  • Similar to how a website is crawled to created generate a sitemap, I go through all options, not just the one focused on user goal or feature objective.
