Why you should do stuff

The thing no one will tell you about the benefit of shipping projects is that you learn the things that no one can teach you. The point of shipping isn’t just whatever the goal of the project is, it’s also:

  1. getting out of your own way
  2. being able to view yourself as the kind of person who does things
  3. learning how known and unknown people interact with your idea
  4. lots of other stuff

Once you shift your posture and mindset to that of the kind of person who does interesting things, you’ll have an invaluable lens that adds a new dimension to your view of what’s possible.
