Why we ditch our ideas

Generating ideas and their execution is not as hard as it seem, I think we all can do this. Sometimes we can come up with ideas just by looking around us, taking a shower or using a product. I ask myself sometimes why I think so much how to improve, change, expand or even create stuff. The answer I find more appropriate is that I like creating them, bringing these to life, from a thought, to the drawing board (or digital) to the physical world.

Some of you might have a similar “Good to Have Problem” as I do. You might think of lots of ideas, concepts, ways to change an existing product, websites, designs, businesses and so on. We all love for things to be adjusted to fit our own mold, our way of thinking and certainly our taste. I believe this is how we might tend to come up with ideas.

I think we might all share similar patterns when we decide to Kill Ideas. We say to ourself things like: that might not work, it might not be liked, it’s worthless, somebody else have already done it, nobody will care, too hard to make and the list goes on…… almost endless self inflicted wounds.

Today, I can tell you that I’m in the process of bringing my first product to market, a train ride that I never thought possible to even come close to doing.

Trust in yourself, gather feedback and follow your gut. (important: have fun while doing this <- secret ingredient)
