Just Ship It

For fun I've been reading  interviews with Ward Cunningham.  (Inventor of Wikis, and a big influence on modern software development) He says:
  [so] much time is spent worrying about decisions that don't matter. To just be able to make a decision and see what happens is tremendously empowering... "
He explains that it is easier and works better to have a plan for recovering from mistakes than to prevent them.

Seth Godin talks about bypassing the lizard brain (deep seated fear of failure) through Just Shipping It.  (Whatever IT is)

7 steps:

1. Connect
2. Be generous
3. Make art
4. Acknowledge the lizard
5. Ship
6. Fail
7. Learn

Now I guess I better get to work.
