I like to follow what I call the "third idea rule".

Don't accept a design as final until you have rejected the first two attempts.

In a pinch, I might go with a second idea, but I usually have to rework it later. Sometimes, years later.

First idea: Usually a reactionary/instinctual approach.
Second idea: More workable, but with a few warts.
Third idea: Production worthy, easier to maintain, better compile time checking(CYA), etc.

Just explaining an idea to someone else will often cause you to find issues with it.
I am lucky to sit next to a super competent individual.
