You ever had that experience when you are instantly hit with what you believe is a stroke of genius. Like a bolt of lightning, you have came up with a brilliant new idea. It’s an idea so good, so novel that you can’t help but feel excitement. An idea becomes an immediate obsession...it’s a gamechanger and you start scribbling notes and the outlines of a business plan. By the time you get home you have already played out the execution in your mind and are counting the money the idea made you. Mogul status!!
And then you decide to google the idea just to make sure it’s truly as special as you think it is.
Oh, shit. It was already done. Some other person got rich on it...back in the 90s according to their website.
So, do you feel bummed or a pride in humanity for thinking of that idea way before you did? I guess a bit of both.
Anyways...on to the next one...
