We often face many problems in life and are on the hunt to find a way out of it. Although it would take a while for one to figure out a solution, but when you do find one it could be of great value to other people who face similar problems.
However, you aren’t sure of it whether it would work or not unless you test it. That’s when “direction” comes into the picture — building and testing your ideas for other people to use it and see if your idea is heading the right direction.
To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men,—that is genius. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
One can build a great product if the solution has been analyzed, but the most important thing to do is test it. When you test your product with a set of people around you, you’re not only understanding if the product would work or not, but you’re also having a team of users who are using your idea and providing you feedback.
Your thoughts and ideas are the seeds of innovation, and believing that it could be of greater value to others, is genius.
