We started with the idea mid-June, and validated the idea in late June. But since then, we've ran into some brick walls. I think some of it was a bit of fear, wondering whether it would even work out. And some of it was not trusting in the positive reception we received when trying to validate the product on Reddit.
But then a few days ago, I read this tweet by James Clear, which has since been deleted.
The tweet said: "When struggling to start, work on a smaller part. When struggling to finish, ship a smaller whole."
That tweet resonated with me and got me fired up. So on the morning of Aug 19th, we buckled down and asked ourselves, "What's the simplest form of this product that we can ship?"
Then we got to it.
