How to know what ideas to pursue
Do you have a lot of good ideas, but don't know which ones are good ones?
Most people don't know a good or bad idea when it bites them on the rear-end. I've heard it all before:

"I don't have enough time." (my favorite)
"No one wants that. Who would use that?"
There are countless excuses, but what makes the difference between a good idea and a bad idea is passion. How passionate are you about your idea? Can you explain it to someone and get the point across of how it functions?
Most people see it in my eyes when I talk about a certain technique or computer gizmo or programming idea. They see the fire starting.
