What is a sitcom startup idea? It’s one which sounds plausible, but is actually bad.

This is not just a bad idea. Those are easy to recognise. Instead, it’s an idea which sounds plausible. So plausible that when you go ask customers whether they’d use it, they don’t say no.

That’s what makes it dangerous. You can read Lean Startup, dutifully ‘validate’ your idea with customers, and then build it. Only to find out there’s actually no market.

In this post, I want to share with you the three things (because I like the number three) that I did differently in 2012, which was the year that changed my life.

And I want to point one very important lesson from all of this: Passion is not enough to make a living doing what you love. So if you want another rah-rah treatise on why you should just follow your bliss, stop reading now.

But if you’re willing to do the work to earn people’s attention and their money, then keep reading.

People around the world recognize companies like Starbucks and Apple for their strong and coherent global footprint, but it took these companies a lot of time and effort to achieve this. Today, companies are born global; it’s increasingly easy and important to reach out to the entire world from the very beginning. Where you come from will matter less, with more emphasis placed on what you stand for, where you’re going and how you will get there.

Your product needs to have global appeal to keep up, and that simply means you need to make the best product. A great product is driven by a strong vision, backed by an acute sense of what people need, and has enough guts to push boundaries. It’s not about adding every feature and widget — that’s the shortest path to mediocrity. It’s about finding the underlying reasons to why people say they want something, and then solving the problem at the root.

Problems are inevitable and so are deadlines. There will always be times when you don’t have as much time or money as you need. The bottom line is there will always be factors outside of your control. What can you control? How you conduct yourself and treat others.
