When we have the glimmer of a new project in our minds we immediately think – Build, Build, Build.
When what we really need are people to help us – Think, Think, Think.
But thinking isn’t building.
It’s not as cool to have a few people thinking versus having a lot of people building.
It doesn’t sound at all like progress.
It sounds more like Empire Building – get lots of resources, throw them in a room, hope it all works out.
But it never does.
The best first step you can take with your new project is to Think about it first. Spend a few weeks on it and really think on it – is there a market, do people want this, do I know what we need to build, can I figure this out, and on and on.
Answer those tough questions of yourself first, before you start asking for others to do the same.
