How I stopped worrying about “when can I release this?”

This project started up somewhen 2014, and after a long hiatus, I started earnestly hacking at it about one month ago. This automatically leads to the question when it would be good enough so I can show it to others and stop adoring the nice maps all by my lonesome.

Translated in managementy speak, when would I have achieved the “minimum viable product“?

A few days ago, thinking about using Trello for keeping my various trains of thought in some semblance of order, I read a blog entry written by Kevan Lee about managing time for the fifteen billion little side projects every one of us seems to have. The main point to take away from it?

“Never Set A Deadline”

“Over time, I’ve found that advice for side projects isn’t always the same as advice for regular ol’ daily work. In fact, a lot of the time it’s the opposite!

Side projects are a very different animal than traditional work”

At long last, someone who speaks from the core of my heart 🙂
