Because how many second chances do you get?
The people who get lucky always say "do what I did" - it's a constant theme in business, they take credit for their actions when it was more of right time, right place, that cannot be easily duplicated.
It's a veiled advertisement for another shitty iOS word game.
And I can't even downvote.
Rather, the appropriate message is: "Make a decision, and move on."
The misstep was waiting a month before shipping when it was ready to ship. Waiting a month for a decision is stupid. If the decision was "Don't ship it," that would have been fine too. As long as a decision being made, you have somewhere to go and something to do. Decision paralysis, though, can kill a company.
I'm the kind of person who exhibits that endless internal deliberation, so I fully understand the need to keep that in check. But, as is often the case, I think the key is finding balance and adjusting based on awareness of your own propensities.
Secondly, is "Always ship. Always. Fucking. Ship. God damnit, SHIP YOUR CODE ALREADY!" (end of the article) really necessary?
