Do you have big ideas and dreams? I do.
I also believe that ideas alone aren’t worth much. Execution matters.
From there, you might get that the game plan for success is to jump completely into a huge undertaking. Unfortunately, you could end up biting off more than you can chew.
Tenet to live by: be wary when there’s an idiom about your situation–you may end up screwed.
I have done plenty of jumping in. I’ve been burnt and I’ve become burnt out. As great as big dreams are, you need to take small, simple steps to get to them. You need to worry about scaling. Yourself, your servers, but most importantly, your concept.
Whatever your big idea, other people don’t get it all at once. You might not even really get it until you start working on it.
In Mathematics, there’s a type of proof that uses induction. You start with a base case and show that something works for it. Then, you show that if something works any step, it will work for the next step.
Put that to work on your idea. Get something out, because that’s vastly better than nothing. Then see what you can do with that something, and how the next thing fits.
