Excerpt

We made it to 1000 improvements in 1000 days, then slipped up and actually paid $1000 to one of our users.

Description

This is the story of what happened when my brand-new, pre-launch
company made a public changelog and made a public commitment (under
penalty of $1000!) to add something to it every day. In short, we
gradually became super great, we made it to 1000 improvements in 1000
days, then slipped up and actually paid $1000 to one of our users, but
it was so insanely worth it that we immediately put up another $1000
and are doing it all again. 1062 improvements and counting!
