You have an idea. A really, really good idea. Seriously, it could be big. You’re scared to tell someone about it though. After all, this idea is worth a lot, right? I hate to break it to you, but no. It’s not worth a lot at all. In fact: it’s completely worthless. The sooner you understand why, the sooner you’ll be on your way to creating actual value.
In today’s podcast, I’m going to tell you WHY your idea is worthless, but then explain how to create something of actual value. I’ll also show you how to get people to notice when you launch something.

Excellent points here Sean. Thanks for sharing this!
Actually it's very difficult to recognize a good idea. I made a poster for a opera play about a story which starts with a very short romance and ends with pain. I thought it would be nice to use a rose as a timebar. the floral on the left and the spot on two thorns. But everyone says that roses are overused. Sure it is, but I thought in this case it would be okay. Nope :/
Could you please teach start-ups from nowadays - most of them have exactly that big problem... Great podcast, as almost always.
Awesome work man!
I completely agree with this sentiment. Most ideas require a lot of refinement that can only happen while a product is being built. Execution has way more value than idea.
I will give the podcast a listen soon. Cheers!
Love your lettering work and podcasts! Keep up the great material.
And I wholeheartedly agree with your statement. Everyone's got an amazing idea, only a handful ever execute it.
