Hi Jaime,

Thanks for sharing this, I agree with the sentiment. I often refer to my v1.0 minimum viable product as the mvf, minimum viable fail. I actually expect it to end terribly but accept that in many ways it is the engine that will kick-start the real project or product.

If we nail it the first time, then to me it suggests it's a sure fire sign that something will come along to mess with it later, or that the goals could have been set higher.

Hi Peter!! :D Thanks for your comment!

Interesting! I'm super optimistic so I always expect it to end awesome haha I guess there lies part of the imagination-meets-reality problem :D But indeed it is the engine that will kickstart the real thing

I phrased it badly, I should emphasize that I expect it to be a failure not from a negative viewpoint, but as a guide to show me what I missed during the development of the original idea.

I always hope that my ideas will work out eventually :)
