Breadth and Depth and Getting Ship Done

As of today there are actually 101 projects lining up to be completed. There are a handful that are already up and running, and awaiting a refresh and relaunch, but there are a lot more that are rumbling inexorably towards take off.

These are the nearly-done, the almost-there, the halfway-cooked. These are the apps, the websites, the books, the podcasts, the stage productions, the scripts and the merchandise that are on their way.

101 projects, most of which are 20%, 40%, 50% done.

Two projects that are 50% done, does not count as one finished project by a long way. The difficulty – the challenge – is in focussing attention on a single project, and delivering a project.

Some have their own enforced deadlines, that are unavoidable and inescapable (unless release is deferred for next year, which would be an unforgivable cop-out). Some have windows of opportunity that should be hit, or regretted evermore.

As half of the team behind 101projects101days.com, I am a serial starter of things, beginner of projects. I work in bits and in bytes, in words and paragraphs; I work in wood, metal, and paper, in fabric and in leather; I work in fits and in starts. Most of all I work intermittently and inconsistently.
