The Minimum Viable Start

Start not when you think you have everything you will need, but everything you need right now..


And by everything I mean the minimum essentials.


Don't overload your reading list by buying 10 books for the rest of the year - just get one for now.

Don't buy every great art tool you will ever need (or more likely prefer), just start with what you have at hand - get the rest as you come to those obstacles.


We have a tendency to procrastinate and over plan - more often this is due to some imagined obstacles down the road and anticipation for them. When we are just starting however we don't actually ourselves know the issues that will crop up...


But we think we do...


Second guessing them at this stage, putting off actually starting, is the worst thing you can do to succeed...


Just get started - more often than not you will almost immediately collide with an issue, one that will take time to solve - if you had waited before for the perfect conditions to start then your project has yet again be delayed...


Starting is staggered and long anyway, don't add to this by waiting for everything to be right...


Get to the questions you need to answer as quickly as possible.

Don't get tangled in the imaginary ones you create before beginning...


The important thing is to get on with it regardless of the less than ideal conditions - which are the most common in the real world, earning you valuable experience for it...


Start with the minimum viable conditions.
