Forget Big Ideas - Start with Your North Star

In today’s Startup Therapy Podcast, Wil and Ryan talk about focusing on what you are trying to achieve before taking action on any big ideas you might have. Some of these ideas don't necessarily lead you to where you want to go. Some, if pursued, just end up in failures and frustrations. Instead, focus on where you want to go and then figure out how you want to get there.  Sign up for the Startups Newsletterhttps://www.startups.com/newsletterResources: Startup Therapy Podcast  https://www.startups.com/begin Join our Network of Top Founders  Send an email to therapy@startups.com  What to Listen For 00:00 Intro 00:24 Getting stuck in looking or working on an idea 03:41 Your business idea should align with what you love to do 06:46 Aspirations change as we age 11:00 Making a business out of something you’re good at 17:59 Specific goals makes it easy to map things around it 23:05 Every founder knows what to avoid 27:21 Just stop doing things that make you unhappy 31:29 When you’re using the wrong yardstick to measure growth 35:24 How to get paid for what you enjoy doing
