Don't make these mistakes:
(1) Assuming an idea isn't practical so you don't pursue it at all
(2) Copying other people's strategies and thinking it will work for you as well
It doesn't matter if you have the smartest team in the world. In order to be creative and successful, you can't make these two mistakes:
(1) Denying too many ideas. This means that you're assuming specific ideas aren't practical or won't be successful. Based on past influences and what you've seen beforehand, this is thinking to yourself "That idea won't work because..."
And on the other side of the spectrum...
(2) Accepting too many ideas. This means you're going to lack originality by using the same strategies as other people. This is thinking to yourself "If it worked for them, then it must work for me as well." However, you have to analyze why it worked for them.
The best way to overcome those things is to think in the middle: "What makes me special? What are my strengths and passions that other people don't have? How can I create something with my strengths and passions that is relatable?"
You should experiment new ideas with this mentality. If you do something but it doesn't necessarily work out, you can still take what you learned and adapt it to the next idea.
