    I guess the real skill lies in building skyscrapers at the speed of building sandcastles.

    What I've started doing, keeping with the physical structure analogy, is to build up your own "skyscraper" boilerplate. Then you can rapidly build ideas out, but on solid foundations.

      Yeah definitely. I think there's a happy middle ground - when you're boshing out an MVP you can be aware of the technical (or design) debt you're creating and take steps to mitigate it if you feel it's that bad.
