very good insights!

I generally like the EF framework, because it weeds out crap. There are a lot of misconceptions in the normie world:

- ideas are valuable (stealth mode bs etc)

- solutions-first thinking

- building sth to solve a problem you've had personally without seeing the larger picture

- building stuff so it scales

you can weed out 90% of this out (and you'll have some false positives) with the following:

- non obvious belief

- mom testing

- market sizing

- edge fit, advantage over competition (hugely variable on idea you're testing)
