if i was that one person, my motivation would begin to affect my
productivity well before the 34 years was up, thus increasing the number of
years required, which would decrease my productivity even further, thereby
meaning it would take an infinite number of years to complete the project.

brooks's law on the other hand states that "adding manpower to a late
software project makes it later".

therefore whichever route you take the project will never be finished.

just thought i'd warn you :-)
