No, we don’t need anything but you.
“Would it be cool if we…”
“How about if we add…”
“We don’t want to miss…”
The answer: no.
You don’t need more of anything with the projects you have. I saw a lot of this when coaching at altMBA, especially early in the program. Students would wonder about “what else” instead of what was there. As a result, the project lacked power. Instead of focus, they went for features.
A notice: If you are reading this, you more than likely have enough tools and your brand/tool/product has enough “features.”
So, that new thing isn’t a need. It’s a way to distract you from what matters.
What matters is doing the hard work of getting the most out of the ideas you have.
It means dealing with the “I don’t know what to do!”
Building the endurance to sit in the tough part and see instead of searching for new is a valuable skill. One of the beautiful things about altMBA is that it teaches you to recognize fear. It takes a lot of shipping to dance with it with reckless abandon, but the first step is recognizing it.
We all look for the juicer when life hands us lemons because that is the only way we get to make lemonade.
