The Settling

One of the greatest threats to the life span of a new venture is the pace at which your product evolves. 

Most products launch, we fall in love with them, then they settle in for the duration. Eventually we break-up because the product doesn’t continue to grow on us.

The good news is that you can get back in the game. Outlook might have done that yesterday with its big update. Apple products – mail in particular, settled years ago and have gone nowhere. Apps I use like Diligent for board meetings – same story (brand identity changes are immaterial to customers and we don’t care). Google, rather than allow GMail to settle is driving us all to Inbox.

In short, don’t let your product settle. Its the onramp to the graveyard. Its why we update Xero hundreds and hundreds of times a year.
