A month into a new startup, and it's happening again.
"OH MY GOD I HAVE AN IDEA!"
I say this at least 15 times a day. I also chew my co-founder's ear off about those ideas.
Launching a startup usually comes with the "fail fast", "hustle and grind" mentality. Which means I'm constantly trying new things, new avenues, new ideas, new channels, new, new, new...new!
Testing ideas fast has an upside, of course. You save yourself loads of time and money. Is there such a thing as "failing too fast"? For me, there is.
And it look like this.
Leaving me demotivated, frustrated, and usually with a migraine. I mentally exhaust myself. I'm like a very hyper hamster on a wheel.
So, I decided to get off the wheel. It's as simple as making the choice to focus on one thing at a time, and giving myself enough time and space to truly think through an idea. Monkey mind is a real thing, and combined with an Idea Addiction, it can be lethal.
Just get off the wheel.
This is a reminder to myself.
