As an aviophobia, I've never been a fan of the phrase (surprise surprise).
To me, the idea of making it up as you are going along implies instability, freakish luck, impending disaster, unpredictability, precariousness, frailty, fragility, amateurism, a lack of confidence.
In short an unhappy time.
I get what the concept is about, though.
The idea aligns with Ajaz Ahmed and Stefan Olander's phrase in their (awesome, brilliant) book - Velocity.
As I've discussed elsewhere in this blog, their view is that it's easier done than said.
That is, intuition, gutsiness and iteration (as in a sequence of operations which yields results successively closer to a desired result) are rewarded.
In my opinion, a better phrase would be their idea of GET GOING, THEN GET BETTER.
