|A few friends and I have been talking about doing a startup as far as I can remember. After University all of us took jobs and now we feel fairly comfortable to start a business/something on the side. Only problem : Can't decide on an idea.|
We create spread sheets and Google docs of ideas but can't zero in on anything. In University we would hack on anything and release it. I feel we are romanticizing the perfect idea too much.
Are we using ideas as an excuse to not start something?
Should we randomly hack on things that we like?
How did you get past your stage of analysis paralysis?
Some advice, I have received is to not look for ideas but to solve problems that you see in this world. How do you pick what problem you'll be spending the next few years on?
How did you find your idea?
