How do you balance doing vs. planning at an early stage startup?

At Raycast we write montly focus documents instead of roadmaps to balance user feedback and vision.

We write focus documents, but it's over 6 weeks instead of a month (duration borrowed from Shape Up).
It's ingrained in the async tool we built, and that replaces Slack for us (and helps cut through its noise for the users who use both). Focus documents for the period are always available, below our day-to-day agenda items (split in 3: decisions, help requests, FYIs), so that they're always around.
