A Hundred Things to Organize

Whenever there are a hundred things or more in a process someone is doing, there is a recognition that “there must be a better way”. A hundred items are the upper bound of what one can reasonably track manually. A hundred items indicate that the process is more complicated than one thought.

Once the need is recognized, one looks for solutions to their problem. It’s usually not “do these 100 things for me”, but more like “give me a better way to do this”—workflows are more useful than solutions. If one anticipates needing to do this a lot, they won’t be looking for a product, but a platform to build on.
