That said, I *did* do it hardcore style the last time I was a full time indie maker. This was back in 2012. I had only about 3 months worth of savings in the bank and launched a SaaS product. It was a case of "make it work or be homeless".
I can't say I'd recommend that strategy to anyone. It's very risky. But there's something to be said for the motivating power of not wanting to be homeless! I hustled like crazy to make that product sell.
Now in 2019, I have a much longer runway to play with. I've observed that I don't have the same raw, intense motivation as before, but I don't see that as a pro or con. I think there's a million ways to give birth to a product.
...whether it's pushed forth rapidly from a need to survive, or from a place of slow iteration, or from experimenting with different MVPs - I don't think there's a wrong way to do it. It just depends on what your circumstances allow and what you have the risk appetite for.
