Thinking of extra features, use cases, etc. for your latest idea is incredibly easy to do. However, as soon as your idea is born, it’s time to shift your mindset away from ideation and towards validation.
When confronted with a new idea, stop there and think:
- Who is my idea built to serve?
- What steps I can take to validate it with them?
- How can I complete those steps as quickly and effectively as possible?
Come up with your idea, shift to validation, and uncover the real problems your idea is capable of solving. Then you can start building.
Ideate –> Validate –> Fulfill yourself & others
