What is happiness? Is it subjective? What are certain emotions that either lead us towards it or take us away? Mo Gawdat unexpectedly lost his son in 2014 during a routine medical procedure. His world came crashing down in an instant, but he then set a mission to make 1 billion people happy.

In product development, speed and quality are two important variables. Prioritising one is typically at the expense of the other. This framework will help you make that trade-off. You also need to validate (based on data) your confidence in finding a solution to your problem before using this framework
The left side:
You do not have customer data but want to validate your product or idea. In this case, speed is important. A landing page and newsletter to see if it gathers interest.
The right side:
You are confident and have the customers’ data to back it up. In this case, build the product or feature and don’t take shortcuts. You focus on high-quality output.
Decisions are based on confidence initially and then your execution.
Choose your side accurately.
