Focus on the problem, not the solution.
I just spent about a half an hour looking online for replacement photo sleeves for a baby album that sits on a shelf in my office. I needed to do this because the sleeve was torn.
After coming up empty and thinking I’d have to toss the whole thing in the trash I realized something pretty obvious…
There were about two dozen unused sleeves in the back of the album.
How often do you get fixated on the solution to a problem that you stop actually thinking about the problem you’re trying to solve?
My first professional job involved playing video games for 9 hours a day. After experiencing early signs of brain rot, I decided to teach myself how to write software.
My entire career is characterized by this “why not?” attitude.
I'm currently the co-founder of AppJawn, the software company behind the amazing recipe organizer app ClipDish.
I also help transform companies into product driven organizations as a fractional CPO.
On blog posts where I discuss products I may include affiliate links. If you click on one of these links and buy something then I get a teeny-tiny commission. As of this writing I think I make enough to buy a cup of coffee once every couple of months.
I don't get any paid compensation directly to write product reviews. I think that's pretty scammy.
