Giving up on 2600 subscribers

Levi D. @levid

Today I decided to finally let go of the product I've been working on for over two years. The truth is I never really did much actual work on The Coder's Coloring Book. I've just been tinkering with the landing page, growing the mailing list and letting that list go ice cold because I'm too "busy" with work/family/life.

Everyday I feel guilty about having a validated product just sitting waiting to be executed. But I've come to realize: if its been two years and I still haven't shipped then I'm just not passionate enough about it to put in the work needed to get it done.

So it's time to let it go. I'm ridding myself the entrepreneur's guilt and freeing my mind to explore other ideas without the pressure of a mailing list looming over me.
