Having been a software designer and developer, what I’ve been doing is really just problem solving. For more than 2 decades, I’ve been solving problems for different clients on various types of projects – from live multimedia presentations, digital mixed media software, off-the-shelve games, computer-assisted learning, last-minute project rescue, enterprise apps, sales apps, educational apps, to native device apps… and more.
In the last couple of years, I’ve decided to spend more time on solving my own problems for my own projects. And it’s been even harder than solving problems for clients.
The main reason it’s harder is because I’m my worst critic. Or I’ve set my standard too high after solving problems for clients for so long. I want to do the best work – my own work, and most results are simply “not good enough”.
As I look at various apps on different app stores, I know I’m being too harsh on myself. But how do I solve this problem?
