Theres just a tremendous amount of craftsmanship in between a great idea and a great product. And as you evolve that great idea, it changes and grows. It never comes out like it starts because you learn a lot more as you get into the subtleties of it.
And you also find there are tremendous tradeoffs that you have to make.
Steve Jobs in 1995
Ideas need help to see the light of day. Instead of analysing needs and wants we can feel into what we need help with. The
method is called Job to be done.
Exercise: Spend a few minutes individually, writing down one thing you would need help with per Post-it. Example: Help me clean make house, Help me get there,
Help me stay healthy.
Exercise: Turn your idea into an intuitive user experience in three screenshots.
