Fixed Downside, High Upside Thinking

Today I'd like to introduce you to Venkat Rao. He writes Ribbonfarm, and he's mastered the difficult challenge of writing smart, novel, entertaining, eloquent, controversial, and accessible content - at the same time. Most people can't do this.

Venkat wrote an excellent reply on Quora to the question, "Is it hard to build, market and maintain a web app that makes at least $1000 a month?" Quora's TOS actually allows you to republish things in full with attribution (and some other requirements), and I thought this would be an excellent introduction to Venkat for you.

This whole reply is brilliant. He's got the orders of magnitude on money, time, and requirements basically dead-on. Extraordinarily impressive read here -

"Is it hard to build, market and maintain a web app that makes at least $1000 a month?"

This is a very interesting question, and the responses are very revealing. It is instantly clear who knows what they are talking about.

Internal Scorecard #17: Operations and Organization

INTERNAL SCORECARD #17: Operations and Organization

I write up these "Internal Scorecards" to look at production, productivity, habits. Some people like this, because you see the implications of long-term decisions unfolding in a real-world context. I like it because it gives me an accountability mechanism as well.

This one is a two-weeks-long edition. I've been too busy doing stuff to report on the stuff I'm doing! It covers 22 September to 5 October.


It's very easy to geek out on organization and productivity techniques at the expense of doing actual work. You probably don't want to do that.
