I have a worse problem, when i’m around to 90% pop in my head some new idea and start to work to another plugin saying “Ok finish the other one when have the structure for this one before i forget it…” and at the end have 100 plugins at 90% :D

This is what is happening to me now! I’ve got 3 new project at like 85/90%... and a new idea has popped in my mind today!

It’s definitely the NSA’s fault regardless.

Each time I develop a new project and I’m 70% to 80% done a similar project as the one I’m working on will pop up on front page.

I had the same experience when I was authoring some years ago!! It happened about three times, I thought I was going crazy! We’re just too slow! :)

This hasn’t happened to me. Maybe I’m just not in touch with the latest trends… :D

Couldn’t resist asking this question, how much is the time it takes for you to complete the product from your first idea? The more time span it takes, the more coincidences you have to face! From my experience, 3 weeks are fair enough to escape from these coincidence tragedies! :D
So what to do when you’re working around 3 months on a WP theme? :D

Since the coincidences are obvious in that area, there wont be any issues too!


2 to 4 days. :) yet is not enough :( to get rid of coincidence

For me it takes around 2-3 days to complete the… help document! :D

In small scale, its ok but the same habit shouldn’t grow into large scales. I came across some people who can’t sit and work on same project after certain time period. That’s one of the enemy of any entrepreneurship practice! Means – some people need final push from others (a project leader :P ) to complete the job! :D

Usually I drop projects within its 25% or else it will never stop until 100%! :? Sometimes, projects start its heavy parts only after reaching 80-90% completion! The words start, complete etc are subjective :D

Yeah! Especially as the creative / portfolio section has room for uniqueness, it has chance for coincidence too! ;)

Also makes you wonder about Flat UI which is the current trend. I can see this get out of control at some point where the likelihood that your design will clash with someone else’s, in terms of choice of color palette, similarity in the smaller finer details such as icons and form elements etc will just make everybody involved suspicious ; Coincidence or copying ?

The minimalistic nature of it all allows so much room for different designers to arrive at the same conclusions lol
