- Was right on with this estimate at 112.
- Also very close with my prediction at 42%.
- Completely failed at this goal (more below).
What’s going on with Pegasus? ¯\(ツ)/¯
Last month I lamented how I felt lost in the woods without direction but at least had the sense that every step
I was taking was getting me closer to some kind of goal.
This month it kind of feels like the goalposts keep moving. So even as I move forwards I don’t actually get
any closer to where I need to be. It’s pretty frustrating, honestly.
I thought I was close to getting Pegasus in the hands of a few people last month, but all of them fell through—either
because the project didn’t end up being a good fit for their needs or because I was too hesitant to give them
what felt like an unfinished product.
Still the project is getting better, ever so slowly.
Now, more than ever, I remain convinced that I need to get it in the hands of other people so I have some clearer
direction on where to take things. This remains my top priority, and I just have to find my way there.
May’s already 30% over and I’m just now coming up for air to write a retro.
Still, I’m home and will be able to focus with fewer distractions than the last five weeks.
I’m going to ditch the time-related goals—since the rhythm of my life seems to have finally stabilized post-child—and
instead focus on two simple output-oriented goals:
- Get someone else to use Pegasus and provide feedback (even if it’s just them doing me a favor)
- Come up with a roadmap and timeline for the public launch
