You’re Overthinking It
There’s a lot of truth in this post. I’ve spoken to many designers and developers who are simply intimidated by what everyone else is doing. I know it’s completely cliche but honestly: who cares? Your idea sucks, now go do it anyway. Sure there’s some hyperbole, but when it comes to side projects or an idea you have that someone may have done already, go for it.
This article takes a more focused approach into those ideas that you think might just be the one. It very well might be, and your biggest enemy is yourself. Don’t overthink it, but be smart about it.
