A year ago I’d have never published this post. Why? Because I’d have spent several days tweaking and editing until it was “perfect”. I’d have lost interest before I felt it was good enough to hit the publish button. What a failure. After reading Rework I recognize, you have to strike when you’re inspired because inspiration is perishable. If something sounds fun or cool, do it now before your passion fades. Yes developers, this means you should do that project, conference talk, or blog post when it initially comes to mind, while you’re still really excited about it. Put your inspiration to work by quickly shipping something out into the world.
