We don’t have a product roadmap. Why?
We become that with which we busy our minds.
I’m not preoccupied with hitting every deadline on a one-year pipeline of features. I’m focused on making it easier to monitor servers every week. Rather than thinking about deadlines, I wake up thinking: “How can we make monitoring server clusters easier? Is what we’re doing now the least-effort way to do that?”
Over an entire year, that’s a lot of days for small improvements to really add up.
