re: What I Learned From Not Planning A Web App (from start to finish) VIEW POST


My biggest learning so far: accept failure. Embrace it!

Each project, feature, every deployment is part of your continuous learning. Spend some time after something went wrong and understand what the problem was and how you can avoid it in the future.

Allocate time properly!

Your 1.5x rule is a very good start.

But do it not only in your final sprint, do it more often. Learn to estimate, get better at it. Set realistic goals and deadlines.

Most important: take care of yourself!
Burnout is real and can easily outweigh a successful project.

We tend to learn and focus mostly on the technical part of our work, and forget that we're still human beings.
