How many times have you had an idea, worked on it for hours/days/months/years and never gotten the bloody thing finished?
I have loads of ideas. They might all be garbage, but you won’t really know until you release it to the world, or ship it. That’s when you get feedback. Nasty, dreaded feedback – but, you’ll also get helpful, constructive feedback and most importantly validation of your idea.
This’ll let you make tweaks, improvements, and in rare cases drop your idea completely. There’s no point spending those hours/days/months/years doing something no-one wants. Unless you want it I suppose.
Spend that time on the next idea. And don’t forget to ship it!
This topic has been covered by a lot of smarter people than me, but that sums up my feelings on it. I’ve been 50/50 about launching a personal blog for a long time, but never did it as I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea. Consider it shipped.
