    It doesn't matter if your problem is as large as an existential crisis or as small as small as the sugar ants that somehow keep getting into your kitchen.

    What problems do you personally have on a daily basis? What would make your life less annoying right now? What would make your life easier? What do you wish you didn't have to do? What are you oftentimes too lazy to do and wish could just be done automatically? What do you wish did more than it currently does right now?

    Try and list as many problems as you possibly can but at least specify 3 problems you have almost every day.

    I'm sorry but this question is way to broad Imo. It's 5:39 am and i got almost no sleep due PTSD. Do you want to manage a solution for that?

    So I got out of bed and made myself breakfast poured myself a cup of coffee and went into the garden. It's windy outside and the door of my fence keeps clattering. Do you have a solution?

    While typing this on my phone my cat keeps pushing her head against my phone which makes it almost impossible to write a message. Do you have a solution for that?

    Will start working on my business before 6:00 am and I have a ton writing to do. Can't find decent writers in my niche and my language. Can you find a solution for that?

    Why don't you pick a industry first and do some research if there's a problem to be solved. There a several threads on this forum explaining how to start when looking for a need.

    Not sure if thats what he's doing, could be saying that we should think about these questions ourselves to find ideas.

    I stay on the internet messing around too long. Problem is, when I get off the internet I usually go out and buy stuff. I want to be a part of a racing team and then at the end of the season I kick myself in the @ss for spending $100,000 on racing and say I'm getting out of racing..... and then I do it all over again the next year. I love chocolate. I love Dr. Pepper. My desk stays a mess. Can you help me Carnac?

    There's both stimulants to wake yourself up and depressants to help yourself fall asleep better that solve that problem.

    How about a product that significantly reduces the noise of a fence door?

    How about keep the cat entertained, like a toy? It's a cat. A laser pointer works perfectly, could make one that fits into a phone case...

    There are plenty of online services to help you find decent writers online, no matter the language.

    Everything you just listed are problems that need solving. If you can't think up potential business ideas worth pursuing from the problems you just brought to me, then that's your problem, not mine.

    There are programs that can limit your internet access for you and shut your computer off if you use it for too long on unproductive things.

    I'm sure you can find a bank that doesn't allow you to spend over a certain limit (or you could pay a third party to hold your money in increments).

    Personal trainers. Diet forms of those sweets and beverages.

    Cleaning service.

    These are all opportunities...

    Sell you a belt if you're too skinny. Sell you many weight-loss supplements/devices or new pants if you're overweight.

    To find problems.

    Then after finding problems, to hopefully find new (or better) solutions for them than what currently exists on the market.

    I'm not sure if any of you know about MJ's youtube channel, but I strongly suggest checking out this video:




    Basically, I'm looking for a list of problems so that I (or anyone else inclined) can have potential opportunities to pursue by attempting to solve a problem in a new way, or to add a postive value-skew with a product that currently exists but does not operate at a level that it could.

    Looking for ideas in short.

    Right. It's an entrepreneur forum.

    Why is attempting to find problems worth solving for a business not appropriate here?

    I think what you're running into is defensiveness. Why would they give you their ideas if they are interested in making money for themselves? That would make no sense.

    I don't have the discipline to turn off my computer. I don't take pills. I don't have the discipline to give the money to someone so I won't spend it; and if I did, I'd just take it from another place I have money. lol I'd call the trainer and tell them not to come.... probably every day. We have my old cleaning company cleaning for us but no one touches my desk except me. I know I need help but I'm too stubborn to get it.... what can you do for me?

    My problems are not ones I could pay you to fix for me. You could come do some physical tasks for me for free out of the goodness of your heart but I am guessing you are asking more along the lines of what can we pay you for?

    My problem is that no hedge fund manager can beat the S&P 500 over 10 years of investing. If you want to provide me value, find a machine learning algorithm that can beat the S&P 500 over 10 years. Then you would solve my problem.

    I'm not asking for their ideas. I'm asking for the problems they have in their day to day life.
