Fits right in with @MJ DeMarco's way of thinking. The more you can open your eyes to problems in the world around you, the more potential opportunities you will uncover

(Of course you need to take action & solve 1 of the problems to release the potential)

Figured the forum would appreciate this as much as I do. Also recommend his book, "Disrupt You"

Basically his advice, for those who do not want to watch the clip:

Observe the world around you and write down 3 problems per day. After a month, you will have 90 potential leads to go into if you remain consistent.

Though many of them will suck, you should eventually be onto some real opportunities to delve further into, and then the work begins.

Also, nothing stops you from writing down more than 3 problems, or from going beyond 30 days... It's a mindset

Have you started writing down 3 problems a day?

It's a useful practice and I did keep it up for over a month (and still take note of problems I see even if I don't record as consistently), but I am now back in execution mode on my one thing

However the great thing about my current mode of execution is that by taking on clients for apps / software, my team is naturally exposed to their problems and I am able to glean insight from that.

Love that book. Easily in my top 3 of all time. My most eye opening moment was the chapter about multitasking.
Did you come up with 90 problems?

More than that. Significantly fewer I would want to work on, but a number were SOLID.

If I find my notes, I will post them.

Yea, I really don't think the quantity of problems was the point. It was to get you in that mindset / habit of looking for problems to solve in your everyday life. @IceCreamKid posted this same good stuff on this forum a few years ago.
