Nat Eliason talks about choosing what to work on based on project synergy:
One thing I’ve learned a lot in the last year is that everything works better, and can grow faster, with good synergy among projects. Each project will have its own dedicated audience and customer base, but there should also be the potential for audiences to carry over between projects so they can support each other.
Project synergy doesn’t only require overlap based on customer and audience, but also through growth and learnings.
For example, this daily blog project is flexible enough to support me on any goal or project I choose. In this past, I’ve used it for the internship recruiting, professional development, and self therapy.
