I'm home on vacation and able to see what it'd be like to build my own projects full time.

One one hand the progress you can make is amazing.

On the other hand I sort of feel like an auto mechanic b/c alot of the stuff I know how to do (knock on wood). :-/

Good morning Code-cationers --

People who code on vacation to make their vacation a lifestyle.

As a developer learning is fundamental. As a founder you have to be careful of the learning trap. You still can learn (and should!) but not always about the newest tech.

After tech then marketing then finance then ... . Not tech tech tech.

Good Morning to the Brave and Smart --

The people willing to take a shot at the American dream but smart enough not to risk everything while doing it, smart enough to know that 10 small bets are usually better than one big one.

Good Morning to the Hopeful --

Since I've been building in public and becoming a part of this community I've felt more hopeful.

Funny how even the idea of taking control of your financial and destiny makes you feel hopeful.

Imagine that.

This is such a great community. Today I was listening to the @IndieHackers podcast with @denicmarko and hearing about his marketing ability and how blog posts and continuously being a informative voice helped @PlausibleHQ.

I learned so much.

Thx community.

Tonight built most of reset password functionality. Pretty good. 80% done. Debugging and configuration to go.

Not too shabby. Skipped my workout but I feel like my site is getting in shape.

Go to the gym? Or work on your startup?

Which one do you love more?

Both choices are right.

Good Morning Everyone Who Made a Little Achievement Yesterday --

Because all big achievement are is a bunch of little achievements strung together.

#startups #bootstrap
#buildinpublic

Everyday you have a choice: build or don't.

Tonight I have a good friend who's in town.

I could go out and have fun but I want to build and have fun.

Watching your dreams come true is fun.

Let's all do that.

So I had a spot instance that I Amazon reclaimed so I had to rebuild some jobs running on it.

Used the opportunity to save on Cloudwatch costs.

Always use infrastructure recalls to look at process improvements and cost efficiencies.

I haven't done as much as I wanted the past few days.

But everyday I do SOMETHING. Just do SOMETHING.

As Dr. King said: “If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
