With so many variables, the chances of there being a single most efficient way, amongst all the millions of variations, is slim to none.
"There’s more than one right way"
This is something that I learned a while ago, and a
phrase I often find myself repeating to remind myself,
and others, that we stop searching for perfection – it’s
impossible to find.
Pick one of the many ways that works and go with that. Get your creation into the wild where you can really start to learn what works, more quickly.
In turn, you’ll save time and energy, allowing you to concentrate on more important things in life.
You’re driving a brand new, top of the range,
Mercedes-Benz, which just so happens to have a headlight
When you get out of the car people don’t say “hey nice car”, they’ll tell you you’ve got a broken headlight.
The same applies to your product - If it’s broken, users won’t care how good it looks.
Make sure the basics are working first, before you go showing off infront of everyone.
I’ve been asked a few times by baby-free colleagues,
“what’s it like to be a Dad?”
To which I reply, “it’s a lot like working on an exciting project with a new client.”
First there’s that exciting moment when you get them home, then you have to…
• learn what they want
• meet their needs

• learn when to say no
• put in some late nights, and some early starts.
It’s exhausting, but when you look back and see what you achieved, it’s all worth it.
There’s a long road ahead of you, lots of traveling to do, bridges
to cross, dead ends to discover. Sometimes you won’t even know if
you’re going in the right direction - relying on instincts and
experience to get you through. It’s going to take a great deal of
effort and determination.
Coming up with ‘the idea’ for a product is effortless by comparison. It’s as much a part of the journey as picking a direction to start walking in - the first moments of long exhausting hike.
How much is your idea worth? On it’s own… not much.
It’s time, care and consideration that add value to the final product.
Execution is everything.
Your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never
let me down, and it has made all the difference in my
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.
No matter how long you may live, you'll never stop learning. Every
minute of every day brings new opportunities to learn something
we've never known before. As long as we're open to receive, God will
continue to teach us every day.
