I have been working on a software that I would like to convert into a business.

And I hope to generate enough interest, customers and money by adding value to these customers.

The challenge I have is time just seems to fly!

I start working on one part of the software. And by the time I manage to get what I want done the way I want it done, 4-5 hours have just flown by!

Is this something other people are finding too?

Is outsourcing an option for you?

Thanks for your suggestion. However, the time it will take me to find a vendor, bring them up to speed and get some useful work done, I will be about 70 to 80% through.

I have tried to outsource in the past. Simple things can be outsourced. But this is a bit more complicated.

Yeah, this is how I feel all the time.

With software development there always seems to be a rat tail of related tasks and new issues keep popping up. You keep getting stuck.
Even when you enter a flow state it takes a long time to make a dent in the backlog.
There are some days where things just seem to fall into place and there is rapid progress, but those seem to be random and far and in between.

Maybe you are at a level where more preparation can help. Love the following article:
If I had more time I would have written less code

But even after internalizing and applying that the issues don't disappear completely.

Probably there are possible strategic decisions that can make a huge difference.
I wonder how things would have developed at the companies that I have worked at so far if we had gone for leverage (for example by building on existing solutions more) rather than being "creative" all the time.

I hear you guys. I am going to see if I can expose some functionality as web services and perhaps look at outsourcing front-end.

Fingers crossed.
