Start your project, track the progress, get it done 🔥
Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement.
Life ends when one gives up learning and doing new things.
Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.
You missed the best time to start, the second best time is now.
It's hard to beat a person who never gives up
A year from now you may wish you started today.
Success only come to those who dare to attempt
Do that thing you always thought of trying.
You might be too busy to start now, but you will have less time in the future.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
There is no good idea, safe idea or stupid idea, just idea we like to work on.
Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.
Sometimes it is not about how much time we have, but how motivated we are.
Everyone should have a now page to tell about
"what I'm doing now".

Keep a public log of Work In Progress to get feedback and support.
Share about the things you have done, your plans and your thoughts.
Magic of Commitment
Once you commit to post consistent updates, it builds the momentum to things done.
You get into the habit of making progress.
- ETA: in 5 months
Progress: 4 / 6
I was tempted to try 12 apps in 12 months, but that would leave no time for development and maintenance of ongoing projects. I anticipated I would get to actually spend one month per project (if lucky).
There is no such thing as good idea, safe idea or stupid idea, just ideas we are interested and willing to try. The real outcome may only be revealed once we implement the idea, and failures by others doesn't mean the idea will not work this time. That's the mystery and charm of an unknown idea.
Let 2018 be a crazy year of app making.

WhatIDoNow: Making a website to update what I am doing now More
I am learning Kotlin and Android's latest Architecture Components, so I build this app to put my learning into actual practice.
I might be too busy or lazy to create a blog of technical tutorials (it does slow down my programming), but those notes are meant for myself (I treat them as documentation), then I am slightly more motivated to do it.
One of the reason many online tutorial sucks is because the author didn't really use the tech in production, thus I shall only document about tech I used and the problems I faced.
Besides, since I did google for a lot of answer online on a daily basis, perhaps it's time to contribute back into the information pool.

PS: Thanks Boo for giving me the idea, else I will probably would not do this.
FlowRabbit: Task management with time tracking for solo makersDesmond Lua updated 2018-05-03T02:43:53.584870
- Designed for solo makers
- Productivity Tracking: Integrated Pomodoro timer and productivity reporting to measure your time spent projects and type of work; also highlight your productive days/hours.
- Enhanced Kanban Board: a more flexible kanban board which support task grouping and expandable checklist. Includes widgets to show quick project status and Pomodoro reporting.
I have been using KanbanFlow (not the best UI, but it works) for a few years and notice it lacks some features I would love to have. Trello, Asana, Ora, ZenKit and Airtable are good products in their own ways, just not suited for what I have in mind. I run the risk of developing a product for myself only, so I should explore if others find this product useful for them.

As I develop the app further, I realize the app is quite useful to help me keep track of progress. I can now backtrack the updates and thought process from inception until now, and time spent on each updates. Starting is the easy part, being motivated to work on it consistently is the hard part. I am planning to build in reminders and gamification to motivate me to keep shipping.
