Your idea doesn’t suck till you test it against reality

About right:

When you stop being a wimp is when ideas start to suck. Ideas that suck are good because you’re starting to test them against reality instead of the mental model in your head.

For 6 years I worked with an entrepreneur who gave up on any idea after about 3 months because, as the idea started to become real, he became disappointed with it. Didn’t matter what the idea was. This happened again and again, year after year. Nothing real could ever live up to the beauty of his imaginings.
