Users are busy so they look for shortcuts and jump to conclusions quickly.

Designers must create simple, efficient, and straightforward user experiences to accommodate users’ limited time and cognitive resources. Streamlining workflows, minimizing complexity, reducing cognitive load, and providing clear feedback can help users navigate interfaces quickly and confidently. By respecting users’ time constraints and designing with their needs, you can create experiences that feel respectful, empowering, and ultimately more rewarding.
