I was deciding whether this venture was worth committing to another year of 70+ hour weeks. I need a higher level of certainty than investors do because my time is more valuable to me than their money is to them. Investors place bets in a portfolio of companies, but I only have one life.
But what about maintaining simplicity? Complexity hides in the details. In the small features and bug fixes. In the move fast and break things, and the just ship it!. Things that are expected to be easy, and it turns out they aren’t because something we didn’t anticipate gets in the way.
