My 30 Day Product/App Challenge

A few years ago, there was a passing fad of a ā€œ30 day challenge.ā€  You would publically announcing you intend to do something within a compressed time line, then start publishing your daily exploits.  The potential embarrassment of failure and artificial deadline was reason enough to keep you on track.

The idea is that without a deadline, the project meanders endlessly and never gets done.  Worse yet, enthusiasm wanes and the project never actually gets done.  The solution: give yourself an artificial deadline.

Most failed, but a few were entertaining to read.

So today, Iā€™m declaring that I am building my first iPhone AND BlackBerry 10 applications, from scratch, within 30 days.
