Ego & dopamine killed my Minecraft project


TL;DL: The Line city is released and going on hiatus! This pet-project was over-hyped into oblivion.


You can do everything to a low standard, or one thing to a high standard..

“Actions speak louder than words do. Shut up!”

“The planning fallacy is a phenomenon in which predictions about how much time will be needed to complete a future task display an optimism bias and underestimate the time needed.”

Dopamine is the happy chemical, released e.g. upon completing something. Such as, after completing and releasing a Minecraft project. Unfortunately, just talking about a project and hyping it up releases dopamine. And I happen to have a social presence. Whoops… I’ll refrain from hyping up future projects.
