Everything I’ve ever built was built because I wanted it to exist so I could use it.
Replace “built” with “done” and you have the response I give to everyone when they ask me why I did something.
No, I don’t get anything from this, besides some social capital. I did this because it needed to exist.
A bit overwrought and dramatic, but it’s the truth. It’s easy to work through the kinks and do something when you’re the audience for it. Your standards will also be higher.
