Since February, I working on a new product for e27, which I am incredibly excited about.
Putting together the product has been incredibly satisfying: I get to work with some of the most amazing partners from great great global companies, and I have full autonomy on:
- Product Strategy
- Pricing Strategy
- Design/User Experience
It feels like all the articles I have been reading about has been for this product. There’s so much things I want to add to the product; albeit mostly minor tweaks. I want to add this feature. It would be cool to have that added security feature. I think a sharing mechanism should be in place.
And then it hit me.
There will never be a perfect product. Never.
Note to self: there will never be a perfect product.

A product is a constant process of iteration. Lean Startup methodology says that, put out a
minimum viable product presentable product and optimize it through feedbacks from users.
Just as the saying goes, there will never be the perfect time to launch, and there will never be a perfect product.
So note to self: categorize the “good to haves” and the “must haves”, and prioritize the features/add-ons.
