2 days to myKanban launch, lessons learned

2 days to myKanban launch, lessons learned
By Tom Littler - Notion & myKanban • Issue #43 • View online
Welcome to the 277 new productivity people who’ve joined since last Sunday. We’re now a smart & curious group of 3583!

myKanban launches in 2 days. I’ll be sending out an email on Tuesday with the Kickstarter link, there will be special early-bird discounts for the first customers!
Why Everyone Should Start a Kickstarter
As the myKanban launch approaches, I’ve been reflecting on the journey. I’m trying not to get too caught up in the financial success of the project. I think we’ve built a great product, and it’s been a blast bringing it into the world.
In my most recent article, I muse over why everyone should start a Kickstarter project, if you’ve got any motivation to bring an idea of yours to life, I’d recommend checking it out!
In the modern world, so much of what we produce is intangible, slide decks, excel models, reports, business decisions. While I can’t see a future in which we throw away our laptops, pick up our chisels, and go back to the life of the artisan producer, I do think spending some time to create something ‘real’ is time well spent.
The feeling of satisfaction I get when I look at myKanban is far higher than any digital product I’ve ever produced. It’s something I can look at, touch, interact with, and say ‘hey without you, this wouldn’t exist. 
Granted, you could get this feeling by, creating something for yourself, whether that’s a piece of furniture for your home or a gift for a loved one, but there’s something about the potential that this tool could provide value to thousands of people that gets me going.
What I'm Reading
When the going gets tough I love to pick up a classic. Nothing quite help my resolve like digging into one of my favourites, The Iliad. Timeless tales of adventure, perseverance and cunning.
Any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.
