How about making an anti-feature list?
Try this: Next time you set out to build something, make a list of the things it won’t do before you list all the things it will do. This is a great way to get focused on building half a product, not a half-assed product.
And obviously I’m not talking about adding items like “it won’t juice an orange” if you’re building a web app. Make your list relevant to the problem you’re tackling and you’ll be well on your way to a simpler, easier, better product.
