The biggest risk of working on something on the side is letting other things take precedence, to lose your focus and for things to slow down so much that eventually no real progress is made, all motivation is gone and the project is abandoned. That’s why keeping the momentum going is so important.
Once you’ve made the decision to go for it, it’s about thinking way ahead but also not focusing too much on what it will take to get there, or it will all seem a little too big. Instead it’s about breaking down the tasks into manageable chunks, making sure there is steady progression and a sense of achievement for the individual and the team. Have a plan that guides you with targets set out so you have something to work towards and stick to them. If not you risk entring a state where you stop caring if a goal post is moved a week or two. Or a month and with that your momentum and motivation starts to go. So keep it up.
