I recently got to work on a Google project as part of my work at rtCamp. It is an amazing feeling to know that your work is going to be seen by thousands of people all over the world. It’s also kind of scary tbh.
The most important thing I learned is that the focus is on getting stuff out the door, even if it’s not perfect. I think it’s similar to the MVP approach.
Shipping things >>> Chasing perfection !!!
Another thing I learned is how you don’t worry and don’t spend too much time thinking about a problem; you just dive into it, riding on the belief that you’ll come up with a solution, and you do always come up with a solution. Now it may not always be the perfect or the most optimized solution, but it’s a solution that works, and that’s good enough.
That sounds like a great thing to apply in everyday life, doesn’t it?
PS. Yes, the primary motive of this post is to brag that I got to work on a Google project. But the takeaways still hold.
