I know here are quite a few solo founders, some even successful and they may relate to this.
When you have a partner is like an accountability buddy, you don’t want to disappoint him, it’s more fun, it’s more motivating and you’re glad to see someone involved so much on a project. I tried myself partnering on 2 different product, but both failed since I picked the wrong guys for the wrong reasons. Lesson learned: If the other one is not passionate about the product and wants quick money…forget about it, even if everything seems amazing at the beginning.
But when you are solo, don’t you have moments when you need to work on something that you don’t like and keep procrastinate it like mad? In my case, I hate writing stuff. I hate writing documentations, blog posts, everything that has to do with writing. Maybe because I’m not writing in my native language and I find my words harder, I don’t know…but that happens all the time.
How do you guys handle this? How do you handle things that you hate doing but you know that you have to do them? How do you stop procrastinate?
