Learned a lesson recently which I thought I’d document for posterity.
I have lots of ideas. We all have lots of ideas. Getting from idea to an actual product that is properly marketed and sold and money being made from it, is a HUGE chasm. An incredible amount of work needs to go into making it. I recently realized that an idea I was perusing died early on because I realized that I wasn’t that thrilled about it. If still feels like a great idea, but I’m not that passionate about it.
– Only follow through on ideas that you are SUPER passionate about. Any less passion will see you stall at the first step of hardship.
– Don’t worry about others stealing your idea. Since it is such a huge labor of love and investment of time and money, nobody else will pull this off. Nobody else will have the same excitement and see the potential of your idea the way that you feel about it.
