Early motivation to keep on working on Bathtimer

āŒ› 1 minute read

After a few months of working on Bathtimer -- first without, then with users -- I've realized something - 99% of my all-time users won't even see the app as it is right now.

Even though it's become a common mantra to "launch early and launch often," I've found myself falling into the loop of "but I can't present this to real users if it doesn't have x, y, z." That looks unprofessional!

A few days ago, I sat down and thought about it. 1 year, 5 years from now, new users will use my app for the first time. It'll be more user-friendly, useful, and attractive, and they won't even know about the primitive beginnings. Just got to take the hit early on. And That motivates me to keep going.
