The Final Stretch - Staying on Target

Nick Haskins @nphaskins

Some projects take off and make millions. Most don't. What matters the most, is finishing.

For the next four days I'll be working to complete the initial draft of my eBook on Rails (https://playbookthirtynine.com). With 165 pages and 35K words, there's a hint of excitement because the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel, is just within reach.

The first draft is still on target to be delivered to pre-order customers by April 13th, with the final release on April 27th.

Thanks to everyone who has been sharing my Tweets!
