Started working on MVP

zrkrlc

I have ADHD.

If you're like me, you find it hard to learn things you don't care about. You make mistakes, big and small. You leave projects half-done, skills half-learned. Even in the things you DO care about, you're never quite sure if you've achieved mastery or are just pretending*.

This is my life's biggest itch. And I'm hoping there are others like me as well.

(Yet Another) Epiphany was inspired by the last three panels of xkcd.com/1027. Never mind the comic's subject matter: those words shook me to my core when I first read them. But I realised that maybe Danish (the girl in the comic) is wrong. That it is possible in fact to break out of one's cycle of mediocrity through some cleverness with tech and knowledge of people's psychological quirks.

That's my hypothesis, and this product is my experiment.

Anyway, feel free to hit that Follow button if you're interested. This isn't really my first startup and I like to think I have some special insight into what makes us tick, but let's see how it goes.
