Building a product requires focus.
Building a product also requires experimentation and trial and error.
It’s hard to build a product.
There are times when I think I am doing something worthless, something nobody will want, in the end. You know that kind of moments…
I find myself in these moments now and then. Tired, the end of the day, putting my daughter to sleep and constantly thinking about my product. “How do I tweak it? Will it be enough? I need to work on it right now! If I just do that thing… ”
In minutes I’m forced in front of the computer screen trying to do something.
I’ve realized I’ve been doing this for a long time and in the end I’ve understood it’s been a very unproductive time for me. I thought I was at least moving forward but I was actually not.
Working late at night exhausts me especially when I do it more than one day in a row.
The result is that I consume myself to the point that I don’t know why I’m doing it and that causes confusion and causes me not to think very clearly about the product.
I am trying very hard to build a product but I want to try very hard to enjoy it too.
