I think that was David Altucher?Here are some ways forward you might consider...
I forget who said it, maybe someone else here knows, but the advice is to write down 10 ideas each day whether you use them or not.
Even if they're horrible it doesn't matter, because it's impossible to come up with all bad ideas. There'll be some decent ones mixed in. By doing this, you train yourself to imagine possibilities. Focus on solving a problem people face. Take action on the most promising.
Something else is to create an environment for ideas to grow.
Follow some entrepreneurs on Twitter and something you read could spark ideas.
I try to expose myself to the mindset of at least 4 successful people (value producers) each day in some form or another, fa book I'm reading, a Youtube video, here at FLF, Darren Daily.
With all that said, don't lose sight of taking action.
Act, Assess, Adjust.
Get a job. You'll find tons of problems and find things you're pissed off about when you're working which you wish were easier but aren't.I've decided I want to be an entrepreneur but I have no ideas yet.
I feel guilty not spending every free minute of my time researching new ideas or learning to make a website.
Do you think it will burn me out or do you think it's okay to read books and do other stuff too?
I do want to work hard but I have no direction to put my effort into.
Very true! I had a mediocre job at a chain restaurant for a while. Noticed some things that Corporate provided them for marketing & operational technology, and started to ask just now... could I bring those same ideas to some Mom & Pop shops? I just started a Speedway thread on the topic.Jobs aren't great for getting rich, but they can be great places to look for inefficiencies or to learn new skills.
To see what people want and do it for them .... first our friend should decide what he wants to be and become it.Just see what people want and do it for them. I'm good at digital marketing after tinkering for so many years so i decided to offer it as a service and people trust my word and pay me for it.
