Finish and publish things

You’re never going to know whether there’s a beautiful idea in there unless you get to the root of it. Work fast, too. If you’re going to work in public, you need to give the public something on a regular basis. Not too regular; nobody cares about the daily output of a high fibre, all bran diet and nobody will care about your too-regular output. Its consistency doesn’t matter and it doesn’t matter if it happens easily and smoothly every day while sitting in your bathroom, reading. Publish things more often than you’d like—if you aren’t at least slightly embarrassed by what you put out, you’re waiting too long—but make sure it’s valuable to your audience. It can be rough but it has to have value.
