things aren’t going to plan.

you’re stuck. you lost your motivation; the will to continue; the flow
the effort isn’t having the intended effect. it doesn’t feel right. it doesn’t look right.

it isn’t what you want. you don’t like it.

people aren’t interested. they didn’t share your enthusiam. you felt alone, lost, or humiliated.


So many efforts go down at design phase when a few changes would have got it right. if you haven’t actually tried you might want to try now. if you have tried or can’t you will probably be revisiting your design and the path that led you there.
