How do you make an idea feel “real”?
Say you like an idea.
You want to make sure it sinks in.
What do you do?
Me? I generally tend to immediately start thinking about writing a blog post about it or, for bigger ideas, registering a domain, and for even bigger ideas, building a product.
Tweeting it, or liking it on Facebook, or other similar techniques is never enough. I still forget it within minutes.
Be registering a new domain, or thinking for a day about how to turn it into a product, for $10-$100 I can make most ideas feel “real”. Sunk cost is a powerful thing.
