Just do it is liberating.

People wait for something to happen to start a new project. They wait for the green light, for a permission, for the best possible circumstances.

Sadly, for many people such conditions never occurred. Embracing the uncertainty. Embracing the fact that it will never be perfect and ship your work is the best liberating tool ever.

I had shipped recently an app, and I got 31 reviews and rating of over 4 stars.

It wasn’t perfect. I thought I don’t have the time, the resources, the knowledge, the motivation.

But in the end, I made something that people could use and appreciate.

It is important to introduce the best possible product, but sometimes starting with a small increment is the best way to go. This will help you learn and develop and grow.

Somewhere I read that the perfection is the lowest standard. It’s time to embrace new standard for ourselves, do the work and embrace the fear.

Ask yourself what would you ship to the world if there was no fear. Maybe the answer is simple, and maybe this will set you free to do the change and the work that matters!
