Ericast 268 - Bias Toward Action

I've talked off an on for a long time about a how a thing worth doing is worth doing badly (that's Chesterton) and how you just need to get up and act.  Looking for more detail on what that actually means? Here's your show.

I've entered an era of lasts.  From the girls' first steps, to "last time together on the bus," etc. And this episode was recorded after the last summer walk of 2015.  (Or maybe not, but probably... this time of year with the sun as it is, it's hard for the earth to stay warm.  And it's getting dark early! That reminds me of the "Dark October Skies" episode...)

So, I was a little tired from three miles of walking on top of two hiking the day before... But, as I heard on a wise podcast the other day, "You... must act"

Randy Cantrell reminds us, "Don't confuse motion with action."

I also discuss the concept of the "Minimum Viable Product" as outlined by Jussi Pasanen.  It's akin to Maslow's Hierarchy: Functional, Reliable, Usable, "Emotional Design"... and the idea of a minimum viable product is that you take a slice off the side, not across the bottom

That takes a bit more reflection, because it's hard to do; "covering the basics" is easier... I think?
