When DO I Give Up? How Do I Try 100 Ideas At Once?

Early 20s, lost in life. Not beacuse a lack of ambition, or a lack of work ethic. I just have a ton of entrepreneurial ideas I want to try. They're all failing, but at what point do I give up on any of them? How do I pick which ideas to stick with and which ones to let go?

Best Answer

Great question. Startup formally has five steps. Choosing. Design. Plan. Drive. Operate. Most people dive in on a hunch. (Me included). Your biggest point is to choose first. Then you know what is the only think you are attacking, and become comfortable focusing on a tiny niche first.

I am sure you are not lost. People spend 20-30 years learning how to choose. So please spend time on choosing, pick the biggest idea (normally the hardest), then go all in.

Other points

Take a step back and slow down first.

You mentioned that you are "lost in life".

I think it is best to think through what motivates you or what you want to achieve down the road.

What are the values you hold dear.

It is a good start to have a 100 ideas. But think through which one brings you closer to your goals.

The self discovery journey is not one that can be rushed at times.
