I never ship because I can’t face the potential of failure. But this is failure in itself. The only thing worse than being the fat guy in the pool, is being the fat guy in the pool with a shirt on.

Can’t tell you how many times I’ve been that guy. Read this, it might explain your feelings perfectly.
