12 Startups Update/Thoughts
I began a journey in March to stop planning to do things and start actually doing them. In my search to find what I wanted to do, I watched a video by Pieter Levels about shipping projects and the challenge of twelve startups in twelve months. That seemed like a great idea to start out, so I prepped for a month and started April 1st.
This weekend I finished my first project in my twelve startups in twelve months journey. It isn’t everything I wanted it to be, but I am not sure it is possible to create something that is everything you want it to be.
This post will cover the creation of that project, things I learned during that time, and my thoughts about it.
Just Do Something
I cannot remember a time when I did not want to be an entrepreneur. As a kid, I invented things like a water recycling drinking fountain and thought about starting my own chain of vending machines. The problem was that all I ever did was think. I have long known that the only way to get anywhere is to just start, but I am a thinker and all the possibilities scared and stopped me. I have been asking myself, “What should I do?” for over a decade now and I have finally decided on “anything, Phillip, just go!”.
