Shipping .png

 

This started as an illustration to explain the importance of minimum viable product verses how we normally operate. When doing things alone, we tend to ship something zero times before the final version, whereas when considering a concept like MVP we tend to ship once or twice. Thanks to “shipping” this several times before deciding on what I would use, this illustration looks completely different (and isn’t even a graph anymore). The big lesson here is to just put something out there, though you may thing its bad. There’s so much to learn and so little to lose.

Working Long Hours

When working long hours, sooner or later it becomes evident that the pace and quality of work slows down. For me that’s after 3-4 hours. Point is, this graph notably changes shape when you take a mental break, meaning that several two hours sessions with an hour break in between is likely more productive than one six hour session.
