1. Find your Cause
Maybe you allready know what you want to work on. If you don’t, start making a list of all the things you care about that need to be improved upon and where you think you might make a difference. If you can’t choose the right one upfront, tart working on two of three problems. The choice will be clear soon.
2. Explore and learn
Submerge yourself in the world of your cause. Forget everything you think you know, get very curious and discover new things. Online and in the real world. Talk to people. Make notes of everything that draws your attention. Try to formulate the problems you want to tackle with your wow project.
3. Generate Ideas
Generate ideas to tackle the problem(s) you identified in step 3. Use your creativity, think out of the box.
The best ideas come from our subconscience mind, usually when you stop thinking about it. To activate this generate ideas over multiple (even many) days.
4. Build -test - build
Try to build something simple you can pout out in the world and test. It might be a product or a prototype. Make sure you get lots of feedback. Now make a second version on the basis of the feedback and tekst that again. Repeat until you’re ready.
