Great New Solutions, but no one will use them…


A few days ago I posted a great idea on a forum. The idea received some positive feedback that is was a good idea, that it could have some good potential, and that it could really solve some issues.

The last comment that I received however gave me a wakeup call and I am so glad for it. The comment was that they agreed my idea was great, but that they had tried something similar and were having trouble because individuals didn’t want to bother using the new solution. The potential benefits could not be realized.

So the moral of the story is to always try and remember that the first questions to ask when you think of a new idea is

  1. Does it look fun?
  2. Will people enjoy using it?
  3. Will it provide lasting value to the people who use it?

These questions will give you an idea of whether people will want to start using your new solution, whether they will not quit using it shortly after starting, and whether they will return to use again and again for a long period of time.
