Build. Ship. Forget. Repeat
While the words build, ship and repeat make sense, what does forget mean in the context of successful startup bootstrapping?
Let me explain that
Many startups i come around today are suffering from unreasonable over-investment, sometimes even unaware of that
Their teams and founders are investing resources into the project and do not get a equal return, if any
They think there’s something wrong with the product and start pushing harder and investing even more in it to make it work, which is a common mistake
Don’t fall into that trap
don’t expect a miracle to happen
because it won’t
That’s the case with unrequited love
it’s gonna take all your time, money and soul
and you gonna end up with is nothing
Now, just stop and think
is my value proposition any good?
does my project do what it promises?
does it come with a reasonable pricing?
And regardless of the answer
the best thing you can do
is not do anything
you’ve done amazing job already
now forget what you’ve just did
and move on!
