The world is full of ideas that can be executed with 10 to 20 hours per week, let alone 40
— All or Something by 37 Signals
Not big words, but it's sort of the same thing I've been telling myself for the last couple of weeks. Even if I only get a 5 hours a week to work on something, it's 5 hours towards the end goal.
Once my son is in bed and my stuff is organised for the next day, once all the little chores are done, once my world is in order again, I open my laptop and put in an hour or two.
It might seem that I am not making much progress, but those hours are adding up and my micro-product is taking shape. I've still got loads to do, but I know that with every hour I'm making a step towards getting this idea executed and launched.
And yes we do need another word for startups.
