Have you ever done, or thought about doing the 12 Startups in 12 Months challenge?
Hey guys! (And Pieter) I am planning on doing a 12 startups in 12 months challenge.
This isn’t because I’m a Pieter Levels fan-boy, I want attention or I’m jumping on the “me too” band wagon. It’s because I want deadlines to ship to.
I began my journey into tech at the start of COVID and have loved it so far. I have tinkered with a few projects in the background but rarely got past the design phase, some early building or user interviews.
The reasons are exactly as Pieter lists on his blog - 1) I get distracted my my new shiny ideas and 2) I’m shit scared of launching them in case they suck and I look like an idiot! A primary reason for being on WIP.
- Have many of you tried this challenge?
- Thought about trying it?
- Do you ship regularly?
- Do you wish you shipped more?
- Would this challenge help?
- Would you like to join me?!
I have looked online and the most formal thing I can find is six devs doing the challenge together as a cohort. Besides that there’s a few folk who have shared their experience on their blogs.
I plan to start this mid-May as I have work and family commitments I have to attend to first but then I’ll be shipping a product a month for a year.
I’m really new to WIP but am getting a lot of value out of the community and the accountability around my to-do’s.
Doing the 12 month challenge is that next step for me.
Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated.
