The "rules" are simple:
- Spend at least an hour working on the project every day, no more than two hours. One day of rest each week. One week of rest between projects.
- Stick to the schedule in order to keep from expanding the scope of the project until I run out of momentum (which has happened more often than I like to think about).
- Can't work on the same project two cycles in a row. And maybe never. Some of these ideas I just need to get out of my head, so I can let them go.
Eventually, I'll probably move my writing here, but to avoid tinkering with a blog, I'm writing on Medium for now.
I write notes on my progress each day and try to provide insight into my process. Sometimes I come up with something that's helpful, other times it feels a little dry. Still working on figuring out what I want to write about. I try to share the bad along with the good.
I need a creative outlet and a place to try out new ideas. I'm hoping that by working within these constraints, I'll get better at picking the right features and building them. I also want to practice launching and marketing, as well as writing. And I'm curious to see what I can accomplish with limited resources. 36-72 hours isn't much time to work with.
I used to consult full-time. I'm not looking for new clients at the moment, but feel free to email me if you need something business-related.
