After years of projects stuck either in eternal planning or proof-of-concept-but-no-traction, I’ve arrived at a similar set of rules.
Paul Graham’s Life is Short was a huge inspiration for focusing on doing only things that matter to me at a personal level.
A strong personal connection is also the foundation for a marketing message that will resonate with others.
I hope I break this trend with my next project through a combination of personal alignment, teamwork, reading, advice-seeking, accountability, and eventually customer contact. Anything I’m missing in this initial system?
