A few months ago, I started a new journey managing one project which was up and running in some places around the world. Thus, I started a new blog series called From Zero to One to share my gained experience with all the people.(Which btw are not more than 20, so click that share button plz).
To catch up, I started my duties from the project side, making it compatible with the new region. At the same time I was also brain storming to find new ways to be as close as possible to users. So, I modified Email verification Messages adding a small paragraph appending my name, photo & Twitter account telling people that I’m here and I would like to hear from them anytime.
However, I started facing some technical difficulties, so I asked the developers to modify some Stylesheets. But until now, there is no response since more than a month! And since I’m a developer, I could do this my self, so I also asked to gain privileges but that didn’t happen neither.
Postponing or Taking decision slowly might kill your project, so You have to act quickly in small cases such as this. cuz my duties are not just with Stylesheets, there is a ton behind that.
If you have a new project or a Startup make sure that you know everything and have the ability to manage it your self. Why? cuz the project which I’m managing seems dead cuz the developers are freelancing though it’s a technical one! If you have a new restaurant, make sure you learn how to cook and don’t leave everything in your Cheff’s hands.
To put that in context, You And/Or your partners should be able to run the project without the team whether they are freelancing or not, you should have everything in hand, otherwise your project gonna be killed not by competitors, by your own hands cuz that passion will slowly fade away.
