Just like Agatha Christie, one of my favorite fiction writers, once said, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started”. In order to build a successful business, you first have to find that business idea which seems just perfect for you: one that would build up on all the things you enjoy doing while allowing you to reach and even exceed your financial goals.
Many people who want to have their own business, tend to allocate too much time to the choosing-the-business-idea phase, thinking that this stage is the most crucial one. Actually all the phases of setting up a business are equally important, but we will definitely gain a lot more clarity out of doing and implementing than out of mentally playing with ideas.
Sometimes, especially when preparing for adventures (like becoming a new entrepreneur), we can get stuck in the preparation phase, trying to reach the perfect starting point. While this is normal, it can also become inefficient, as it can easily postpone the launch of our business.
Now, I am not telling you that you shouldn’t be serious about choosing your business idea. But you should not allocate a lot of time (more than a few days) to this if you don’t really need to.
