thrashing is fun. working on the work is…work, but as long as i see it as being purposeful it can be fulfilling. tuning clarifies. shipping is just a little to tough for me. the part where you put what you have ‘out there’ for public/private consumption seems to start the cycle all over again. no, it forces a mind shift that you aren’t prepared for in the thrashing/working/tuning phases. let’s not call it putting out fires but at times it comes close to all out damage control. the most recent version of this course is nearly completely reliant on the management system and not a third party development package, which was a source of great frustration for me in the past. i would like to think that i learn lessons from the books i read and linchpin seems to have offered me all sorts of insight regarding the work we do and when it is time to let go, get in ready position and field what comes at you next.
it’s tough to ship
