Stop Building

by Paul Mostowyj

A project must have a beginning and an end, otherwise it isn’t a project.

Once you’ve reached the end of a project, it can be very easy to want to keep on going and do more. We do this not because we have to and not because the project needs it; we do it because we want to keep hold of that feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. Adding a few more bells and whistles is not the same as adding more value.


If you’ve built your wall as long and as high as you need it to be, stop building. If the design of my blog meets my needs then I need to stop tinkering and concentrate on producing content. Recognise when you’ve reached your goal and stop, before you go too far and wreck the work you’ve already done.
