The more you share your idea, the better that idea becomes.or the more apparent that the idea is not a good one.The function example is comparing a string to a known date format.I suggest reading the documentation on the date format to see why you're making the wrong assumption.
The biggest mistake people make when creating a product of any kind is keeping the idea to themselves. As mentioned by Jon Saddington, uber-successful serial entrepreneur featured in Session #61 of The SPI Podcast: …Because this is what happens when you start sharing that idea–it starts becoming refined. You’ll quickly get feedback – instant, guttural feedback from people, and especially complete strangers that say “that is a stupid idea” or “that’s a great idea but have you thought about this?
If you find out it’s not, then good—you will have avoided wasting time and money and can move on to something else.
If you do validate your idea, then you’ve given yourself a much higher chance of succeeding with that product.
The reason I’m a success as an entrepreneur, and why many other entrepreneurs are a success is simply because we do it. But talking about it is where it starts, and because when you start talking about it with other people, you continue to drive the motivation.
You continue to build momentum, and you continue to get excited on a much better and much more refined idea.
