Patience and Collateral Progress
I don't need to make a note of this, I probably shouldn't make a note of this, but yet I think that I have to make a note of this. A long time ago I came up with an idea for a tech demo that I could eventually use to attract attention and possibly generate some advertising revenue. I drew a few designs, wrote down some notes, and then put the idea into all of my planning documents and todo lists as something that was theoretical and probably not going to happen. Since I started work on a project that I deemed as much more important and therefore beneficial to my company overall, the actual strain of doing this project became much less. Instead of making more tech demos for technologies that I might not find important, I was making something more useful that I was already using. It felt pretty good to be able to change the status of this project from theoretical to actually happening. This makes my company appear more credible, and I think that I like the whole system of just writing down ideas that I like better as well.
