Def. 💯 But that idea itself (let's get meta...) is part of a problem-solving framework itself 😜.

I agree that a very rigid way of solving problems everywhere is def. going to constrain you 100%.

But even in times of experimentation, your experience should guide you in knowing:

  • what to experiment with
  • how to do it
  • how long to take until giving up
  • how to detect potentially successful experiments
  • etc.

So even the process of experimentation itself has some over-arching framework that you implicitly and explicitly are aware of - which, in the end, should be informed and improved by your past experience.

That's a bit more philosophical than most would like 😂.
