Today’s lesson comes from Foursquare co-founder Dennis Crowley:
“Don’t let people tell you your ideas won’t work.
I went through a few years of this before I realised I probably just saw the world differently than the people who said the stuff I was excited about wouldn’t work or that people wouldn’t want it / use it.
If you’re passionate about an idea that’s stuck in your head, find a way to build it so you can prove to yourself that it doesn’t work.”
