Lost focus

30 Sep 2008

Over the past few months I've been working on a big upgrade to and the AgileTracker.  It's just about done and I'm really happy with the results.  But I'm starting to wonder if I've just lost focus.  I'm writing a project scheduling application, yet over the past few months I haven't really touched the scheduling part of that at all.  I've been dealing with time tracking, OpenID, Amazon EC2, server reliability, rss feeds, and collaborative features.  But I wonder at what point it's best to skip all of that and just really focus on the core functionality of the project.  After I get this upgrade out of the way I'm really looking forward to focusing on those core pieces again.  I've had some great ideas about things to make scheduling tasks easier and I hope to get some prototypes working soon.
