Confession Time

I have a confession to make- I am a release junky. A full fledged addict and it feels good to say it out loud.  Releasing new products/functionality/sites gets me out of bed in the morning.

The build up to the release date, hitting the go button, and then watching the feedback come in. I can’t get enough of it.

The first part of my career was spent in a service based web consultancy where I was working on 5 to 10 projects at any time. We were fast paced and never went  long without releasing something for our clients. Working in this environment for the first 6 years of my career probably explains where the addiction started.

The truth is there is nothing like finishing. Whether it’s the 100 metre sprint or the marathon- that sensation of crossing the finish line is amazing. You get there, you stop, you look around, sometimes you even want to throw up, but every time you pick yourself up, walk away, and start thinking about that next race while you swim in your own endorphins.

It’s so important to understand what makes you tick, where you find the inspiration and the motivation to keep going on those grey days.

I like the finish line and I am proud of it.
