Ever tried to learn a language, get fit, or write a book? Spent a considerable amount on a linguaphone course or gym membership? You felt a high when you spent the money and thought that you were halfway to your goal, only to find that a month or two later you’re no nearer to success than you were at first – except your wallet is now much lighter?

Well, you’re not alone.

Other similar projects that I’ve seen can include inventing new designs for some embedded computer hardware such as an Arduino, or developing a web site and purchasing the server before writing any content.

What was your project?
