241: The Pressure to Ship. Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt


In this episode, Donn and Kaushik talk about the fear of shipping, some impostor syndrome and how it contributes to uncertainty and doubt in your capabilities as a software developer.

Recently Donn embarked on a mission to come up with an idea and ship it within 24 hours (which he did do). The end result was a net benefit of confidence, speed and skill acquisition. This helped reduce any doubt, uncertainty and ultimately fear of shipping a product faster.

That’s what this conversation is about … how to doing a project like the 24 hour MVP can remove fear, uncertainty and doubt and help you ship your side project/products faster.
