Let’s Make Games and the Cult of Done

I hit into a bit of a roadblock moving forward with the Let’s Make Games community profile document (summarising results of the recent survey) and website.

Basically, I was spending too much time trying to get all the visuals just right and it was compromising my timeline. On top of that, I had other things to work on and my timeboxes were all starting to be affected.

Here’s a quick mosaic of a few of the different variations for the community profile document (thanks to Simon for a bunch of the vector art and design number 4, and sorry for bothering you will endless creative changes!):


Um… ignore the last one. I probably could have stopped at number 3, or even just been more measured early on.

I felt myself on the verge of throwing way more time into this cover and then writing a new WordPress theme for the homepage. Neither of these activities are really necessary, and would both take a fair amount of time.

This reminded me of the Cult of Done Manifesto by Bre Pettis and Kio Stark and I decided to just get on with it (and other things). I just need a little reminder every now and then as it’s easy to fall into bad habits.

I’ve generally been pretty good at just “getting things done” regularly (as my blogging probably attests). It feels great! 😀
