But life has a very direct way of teaching us :)
A few years later on the exact same corner: "What a crowded and fancy coffe shop. Wow! They must make a furtune! Well... I have thought of the same thing back then..."
I beleive that every good idea can be a million-dollar idea. But just a handful of them will be...
To come up with an idea is "easy". But to take action... It's a lot harder. You need to take risks, you encounter countless obstacles, you need to work with a lot of people. And if you're enthusiasm runs dry, it's over. At least this is what I've learned from my previous "project". (By the way I still hope that we can finish that one as well)
The bottom line is that you have to be 100% sure that you want to do this!! As Yoda said: "Do. Or do not! There is no try!" I'm 100% sure, that I want to do this, and I want to keep it that way. I think that this Blog can help me in that.
So you might ask:
- Do you think that you have a million-dollar idea?
- Well I'm glad you asked. You know, it's not about the money. I mean maybe I can't be measured that way. It's about how it makes me feel. I feel excited!! I feel that so many people will use and love this! So because of that:
Of couse I think I have a million-dollar idea! I beleive in it and I'm enthusiastic about it! But I always have doubts...
Is my excitement blindfoldig me? Am I hiding the truth from myself? I have to find it out! I have spent now 3 days of searching for anything that could prove that my idea is not viable. Fortunately I have not found anything game-changing. But I will have to know what my potential costumers have to say. I need to mesure the demand. So I have decided to make a survey to evaluate the demand for my "product". I have to do some other things before that, but I will show you the survey and the outcome :)
P.S.: Oh and I have registered my blog to one of the largest Blog databases. It's pretty awesome:) Check it out: http://technorati.com/
