Make the MVP
MVP means Minimum Viable Product (among other things). The minimum viable product is the first build that does something useful/fun (depending on what your user was going for).
I like to compare this to Petri Purho’s advice, “build the toy first”. Petri spent a long time making games in 7 days, and often found that building a “toy” – something that was fun in an unstructured way – was a great gateway to making a finished product.
Here are a few reasons I can think of:
- Early gratification leads to motivation
- Motivation leads to progress
- Progress leads to completion
So my tip of the day is “make the MVP”! Just make a thing! You can do it!
