Ever get so busy and stressed that you realized nothing you were doing was working?
You feel as if, all you need to do is, move faster, get things done faster, run from one stop to the next faster...
However, in the end, it eventually will, catch up with you.
On the flip side, did you ever have a day where you didn't care? You felt as if everything that needed to get done, was going to get done? You may have walked a little slower, breathing in the air and ...
I think the current problem with the entrepreneurial community isn't that enough "new big ideas" aren't on the scene. Not that someone hasn't build the next Google or next Facebook.
The problem is, enough simple things aren't being solved. We still have every day problems hanging around that have plagued our parents' generation. In this age of cool technology where it takes some startups days to get funding and a few years to go mainstream, and we're still stuck with industries that...
One thing that being a layer, web designer, entrepreneur and psychologist have in common?
To be anything that pays better, brings the best out of you and really makes a impact in the world that people can't live without, you have to be a problem solver.
Every Time there's an exchange in money it's for a very small amount of reasons:
People want a problem of theirs' solved
or they want to be entertained, delighted and satisfied.
Old tactics of marketing online (like PPC ads) have become much more saturated and expensive over the past decade.
The times I've tried out Google Ads and Facebook Ads I failed horribly and it costed me.
So what are some other ways to get out there:
Share cool stuff
Give free advice
Launch free mini-apps
Provide a open source library developers will love
Salvage everything you do and create opportunities on the side
According to Kerry Travers, former Senior Business Consultant, BBC, “data is the most visible part of your system to your customers, it is the element that your credibility is built on." So, data is so important to an organization. It's the lifeblood to identifying, winning and building customers. Organizations are struggling to integrate an unprecedented amount of customer data streaming and to create definitive data that can guide their interaction with customers and prospects.
Chances are you can live on a lot less than you think.
Don't think of it as a limitation on your lifestyle, but rather a game.
Make progress with limitations.
Less crap from 7/11
Less planning ahead further than you know yourself
A prototype doesn't come as a full package. It's a sample of the core concept.
Thinking clearly about what is really important is key.
Me-too products are poor imitations of great brands. The bad assumption in this case is thinking that the product is the greatest element of the brand. When it's really the brand itself.
The product obviously matters, if that's all you have at the beginning.
Disruptive technologies bring new life to things we take for granted. They make a boring experience better, faster, easier or more fun.
You don't have to be completely different or original. Just stand ...
After being a web coder for more or less ten years I've learned this...
On the far side of all of the time wasted, all of those extra hours put in, all of the articles read and the tests run, the solution to the problem is probably 100x simpler than you initially think.
The problem with most entrepreneurs' thinking is the idea that we need to build something big to be successful.
The actual truth is:
You don't need an awesome framework to buil...
Sometimes you need to throw less time at the problem. Fewer days spent doing things of such little importance.
I realize that sometimes we spend months making breakthroughs on things that have already been done. Basically, we throw away resources on reinventing the wheel, when all we need to do is copy & paste, download/clone front GitHub or npm install the "wheel."
Writing code is fun, when kept simple. The problem comes, when you try to solve problems that don't e...
Every day you're given a chance to be your best. Life is this blank canvas, that comes with a framework, allowing you to create whatever you want and use creativity to make it your best.
So that's why I'm saying, don't end the week without a small success, a reason to feel good about what you're doing. A reason to feel excitement.
Small wins are like small savings at a high rate of interest. They build slowly at first, and later they grow into something bigger and more ...
