There is a lot of great information in this post .
A couple parts below:
Experienced people know that execution is more important than idea. In fact, the more jaded and cynical folks in our industry would say that software product ideas are worthless. Without a doubt, great execution on a good idea is far better than poor execution on a great idea. If you want to beat your competitors in the market, focus on being a team that can get things done. Perfect execution on a terrible idea will get you exactly the results you should expect.

There are two groups of people who have opinions about which software product is the “best”:

  • Us. The developers. The geeks. The people who create the products.
  • Them. The customers. The normal people. The people who buy the products.

Here’s the lesson that developers must learn: The customers hold the only opinion that matters. Sometimes their choices don’t seem to make any sense. They prefer one product when we know the other one has better technology
It is a long post but worth the read.
