Every design needs a first draft. Three is even better! Brainstorming different ideas gives you several advantages over just charging down the first path you think of:
- The first idea is probably not going to be the best idea.
- By having several ideas, your ego is not wrapped up in one specific idea. You'll feel free to critique any particular design more, thus improving it.
- You can compare and contrast the different designs. And you can mix and match parts from each.
