Ideas are the seeds of the startups. But ideas are my big problem, and for many entrepreneurs. Why? It is just an idea! Well, I face two big difficulties while I’m working on my ideas.
Ideas too big: This problem can be summarized in trying to get over the world on one step.
Too many ideas: That is a classic one; I have so many ideas that I don’t know each should I choose.
Think big, but choose a small piece to start.
The word for that is MVP – Minimum Viable Product. The MVP is the first version of your App or your product; it is a prototype that you could sell. It must have something relevant. Just a few people will get interested for it. But it will be you idea sprout.
Passion; let it choose your idea.
Having many ideas is good, but chose just one. Or at most two, and work hard on them. I discovered it in a class, but I learned in real life. It is almost impossible to work on more than two startup ideas at the same time. The biggest issue isn’t run out of time, is the energy you will spend on each. If you don’t focus on your ideas, the chances of failure are much higher.
But how should you choose? Think in the future, what you will have pleasure to say that you did? Let your passion guide yourself. Don’t focus on the idea you think will be more profitable. A passionate idea will give you much more – professionally and financially.
