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.
