This is why remote work is so powerful. Today I'm WFH and I just finished my work for the day.

But instead of commuting for an hour I get to take a quick break and then work on paulineslist.org.

WFH + Greater Productivity = WFO + Commute ~ Waste

Good Morning --

Off of vacation/build-a-thon, back to the day job, and then making my dreams come true.

Shout outs to my fellow Builder-Dreamers.
#buildinpublic

You know it's easy to think that everyone works everyday all day but it can't be true. I went out last night and I'm hung over.

I'm resting. At 5 or 6 I'll probably put in some effort but now I'm not.

It's important to know that people do rest.

GM Builders —

Today I’m going to do a bit of #scss programming. Hopefully i finish. But the priority is a haircut and the gym.

Today is about a little self care.

I worked six days on paulinelisr.org. Today is about me.

#balance
#buildinpublic

Here are my plans:

What's left ...

3. Workout (light)
4. Implement Front End Data Ingestion
5. Hopefully beer and maybe a haircut.

... we'll see ... 😅
@PierreDeWulf This is a very mature point of view. Now that you've built a business maybe build in public no longer works for you. Maybe you have to protect what you've built and share less.

This ironically may be one of the final lessons of BIP ... knowing when to stop.

I like to say, don’t have a business. Have a mission. Why? Because you can quit a business. But a mission you can’t quit.

So what defines a mission? What’s the difference between a business and a mission?

Good Morning. Whether it'll be a good day is up to you.

Here are my plans:

1. Finish back end script
2. Debug back end script
3. Workout (light)
4. Implement Front End Data Ingestion
5. Hopefully beer and maybe a haircut.

Thanksgiving Day Plans ... what's left

3. Build front end
#buildinpublic

I find myself as I write code holding my breath. It's not writing the code.

It's the fact that I know as I write my code it's the first time in my life my destiny has truly been in my own hands.

Happy Thanksgiving.
#buildinpublic

A lot of people say they want success but do they really?

This week I purposefully took the entire week off, cancelled going to any functions, just because I needed to GSD.

There's nothing like knowing you can rely on you.

What's up Balanced Builders --

People who are building everyday but with balance, i.e. hitting the gym, taking a walk, grabbing a coffee away from your screen.

A little balance can add a lot of perspective

#code #startups
#buildinpublic

Just finished a script that allows me to save articles to an SQS queue.

Now tomorrow to build the ingestion piece and wire it up to the front end.

Then I'll be able to update the main site with save functionality.

#code #goodday #goodnight
#buildinpublic

All right. Building the save functionality for paulineslist.org. It should be released by the end of the week.

The only place where you can see every article for a publication algorithm free and save them.

Save function coming soon.
#buildinpublic

So last night I finished a big part of my relaunch: login and password change functionality.

Next article save functionality.

#progress
#buildinpublic

I've realized recently that having a website in the beginning is a lot like baby sitting. Here are some things you can implement to make your job easier. This is AWS specific but you can use other clouds as they're all basically boxes anyway.
#buildinpublic

Having a startup is like having a baby. It requires constant care.

Analytics are like a baby monitor. Not required but you'll sleep better at night.

Right now my challenge is getting a stable platform geared toward my ICP.
