When to ask for help

How to know when you should ask for help?

Given your work is estimated on a Fibonacci scale. For example:

  • 1 point = making a copy change
  • 2 points = updating a small section
  • 3 points = updating a midsize section
  • 5 points = updating a big section

You should ask for help when you’re stuck after:

  • a few hours on work that’s 1 point
  • 1 day on work that’s 2-3 points
  • a few days on work that’s 5 points

This isn’t a hard rule since getting unblocked is always a good thing. So in doubt, ask for help!
