Action wrote an article called If you knew you would succeed, how would you go about your work? that I found to be pretty insightful.
If you knew your current project was going to be a success, would you get more passionate about it? Would you exert more effort to see it through? Would you try to complete it faster?
The point here is…if you know you’re going to succeed…why are you hesitating and slowing down progress towards your goal? You may make routine progress…but if you’re going to succeed, why not take steps to reach that success sooner and more deeply?
I’ve dedicated this Saturday to game development. The last time I did so was for Game in a Day, and it was definitely my most productive development session. I think that taking such massive action should help jumpstart progress on Oracle’s Eye. In the past I would have only a few moments of real work at a time. Now, I want to take my game development full throttle.
