Solve one problem simply, cleanly and completely.
Entrepreneurs have ideas all the time, but you can’t pursue them all at once. You get ‘un-synergy’ - where you dilute your efforts and diminish the results. Focus on your idea like a laser and put all your effort into it until it succeeds or fails.
Ideas are easy, but committing to one you’re actually going to pursue and then making it happen is harder.
Think of an area you’re passionate about and try to come up with 50 ways you’d change it for the better.
What are the biggest assumptions and uncertainties of the idea?
What’s the fastest, easiest and cheapest way to answer those questions?
Until you get your product into the hands of a real customer, you’re only guessing.
The focus required to succeed can’t come from someone who’s just doing it on the side. You need limits, rewards and consequences.
Validation: your target market wants and needs the product and are showing it through their actions.
Measure every change that you make.
Always state ideas as Problem and Solution.
