Episode 217: Surely I Can Get This Done

Daniel talks to Manton about his new podcast, Timetable. The two discuss unmet goals and the risk of perpetually failing to meet one’s own expectations. They affirm the merits of releasing software updates often, and minimizing friction for procedures that companies should do often in order to succeed. Manton discusses his App Store rejection for a forthcoming product, and Daniel tries to talk him into changing his approach to marketing the paid version of his upcoming microblogging service.
