re: What do you do if you're in the middle of a project and you realize it already exists in the world? VIEW POST


You should remind yourself to do better research before your next project. Then consider this found project as though you didn't have your own yet. Avoid the fallacy of sunk costs.

If it does what you need, use it. If it doesn't, keep going. Be wart of Not-Invented-Here syndrome, but don't fall for Invented-Here Syndrome.
