  1. I have a similar story – wasted 4 precious months of my life creating a web directory that gave me zero results. Plus, I’m a noncoder ( you can think how hard it would’ve been for me to create it).

    Glad I learned a lesson!

  2. Hi Pamela,

    I love this article! You have a great way of explaining the importance of minimum viable products and why they are such an attractive option to overachievers.

    I appreciate your advice on starting with something small and using that as feedback for creating a more comprehensive product.

    It takes the pressure off of creating the “perfect” version right away.

    I agree that starting backward is a less painful way to develop new ideas. It’s been my experience, too – starting with something small allows me to get customer feedback quickly and make tweaks along the way, rather than launching an extensive product in one go without testing it out first.

    Not only does this save time, but it also increases customer loyalty as they feel included in the process.

    I also find it much more fun to work with minimum viable products – excitement comes from having an idea and seeing it become a reality quickly.

    It definitely is inspiring!

    Thanks again, Pamela, for sharing your thoughts on this critical topic.

    I would definitely recommend this article to anyone looking to develop new ideas without the pressure of perfectionism getting in the way.

    Keep up the excellent work!
