Remote Matcher Journal #13

by Nick

This is something new I’m trying: a journal recapping the work I’m doing on Remote Matcher which is my current side project. My goal with this is to do some public accountability so I’ll > keep moving forward on this project.

(Real talk: I’m passionate about the idea behind the project, but I seem to have some kind of mental block about getting work done on it. These blog posts are meant to apply pressure to me to report my progress publicly and move the project forward)


(Bottom Line Up Front)
This is the end. The objective was not achieved.


Basically over the last 4 months(!) my ability to get things done on this project have slipped, slided, and eventually fell off a cliff. Looking at my project tracker I see that every week since the end of October I have gotten less and less done.

Let’s do a 5 whys on this.

The site is still up and running, and is more or less on autopilot.

I want to make this into something more than it is and help people find the joy of working remotely.

Next steps

Take a break. Read some more, play around.

After the holidays, regroup and see what is around.
