Programming is all about logic and mathematics. Marketing is all about ‘feelings’, it just has to feel right to sell. So use ‘logic’ to design and build a product that ‘feels right’ so it will sell.

Just invent something. There are problems out there, so research one. Try this, try that and make it work. Keep improving it. Don’t quit or give up. Remember Thomas Edison had many many attempts at the light bulb, getting the right wire and right voltage at the right temperature. So keep trying and don’t give up. When up again a wall pray and seek guidance from above. Sometimes working on multiple areas at once can help give the inventors mind a break, so you can get the next break through.

Our beautiful creative mind easily gets into ruts or prejudices. We are looking for a solution and our sub-conscious thinking is saying “no, that’s a bad direction” when we are considering several alternatives. Now why is it a “bad idea”, because it will not work, or because it does not seem so beautiful to our accustomed ruts? Sometimes it is hard to determine. Sometimes a “not so beautiful” solution can be worked over and re-designed to work and look beautiful. Sometimes we are stuck and need a Paradigm Breakthrough.
