"I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." - Bill Cosby
An interesting observation came up while having dinner with my wife’s family this evening.
They had made Italian. The spaghetti came out on the dining table and we plated up. I tasted it and found it pretty good - nice touch of a little bit of spice. But, my father in-law preferred to have the spaghetti sause a little bit chunkier. My wife looks at me. This is the perfect case of ‘featuritis’ (co-incidentally, just a couple of hours back I was telling her that how it is hard to please every DeskAway user). Here, we were four of us (same family, similar tastes, backgrounds etc.) and couldn’t agree on the perfect spaghetti then how could we expect everyone world-over signing up for DeskAway be satisfied with what we have to offer them?
It is impossible to please everyone. So don’t! Make the dish that you like and attract people who like what you like.
