I'm glad it resonated with you! Thank you for showing the support!
What stops you from releasing your two-year long project? Maybe you don't realize, but it's quite ready for its first users? A wise man said that what you should ship product while you still embarrassed about it. When you don't that means it's too late!
I had a breakthrough when I set myself a deadline to ship a web app in a week and did it publicly on Twitter. The combination of constants that made me think about how to reduce the scope and accountability helped to achieve the goal. Once I shipped it on Product Hunt and received a lot of positive feedback I got me wanting more of that. I got hooked!
I made the mistake of assuming. As you said, I hadn't even published any piece of it and I was struggling with how I'll be processing credit cards. I added so many features that tech debt caught up with me. I am still looking forward to working on it again. I'm still babysitting the android app for now.
I see. Good luck with both projects!
