Isn't this the essence of design thinking?
I have a great wool hat that I wear in the winter. Does it help?
Well, that depends on what it's for.
If it's designed to keep me warm, then yes, it helps.
How about that meeting you're going to, that website you're updating, that question you're about to ask?
What's it for?
Does it help?
If it doesn't help, or you don't know what it's for, perhaps it's time to revisit your choice.
