Several weeks ago, after what now seems like much unnecessary agonizing, I decided to stop working on someone else’s business full-time and instead dedicate my time, energy, and resources to my own ambitions.
Since that fateful decision, I’ve been suffering from an affliction known all too well in the maker community: ideation overload.
The main symptoms of ideation overload include:
- A chronic and insatiable itch to start something new
- Idiopathic idea generation and subsequent abandonment
- Persistent desires to conquer industries one knows absolutely nothing about
And I’m afraid, my friends, that the diagnosis must be self-realized. As I disappointingly found out, no-one else can really help you with this.
The prospects of quick and effective treatment, however, are much more encouraging. Despite how attractive it might seem to try to think oneself out of the problem, the only viable means of managing and ultimately minimizing the above symptoms it to actually get sh*t done.
That’s right: the solution is simply to start.
So that’s exactly what I’m doing.
In the coming issues of this newsletter, I’ll be sharing with you my project ideas, build processes, growth strategies, and alllll the juicy juicy KPIs that we indie makers love so much.
That’s right - I’m abandoning the search for the Golden Idea, My One Thing, An All-Encompassing Mission, and I’m just going to start building things that I think could be useful.
