I was aimlessly looking for a side-project that held my attention. One day, I watched Tom Bilyeu (who hosts the YouTube channel Impact Theory) explaining his passion formula. Simply put, it’s this:
Interest/Fascination + Mastery
Interest/Fascination? Well, I adore reading books by behaviour experts in my spare time.
So, one lazy idea is to build the app to facilitate users who want to keep track of their non-fiction books. Secondly, talking amongst other users who might be interested in a sub-genre of non-fiction too.
What’s your interest or fascination? What’s your programming languages of choice? Do you regard yourself to be master of that?
- Is it a person who loves the outdoors in nature and Swift?
- Is it a person who loves Arduino and Rust?
- Is it a person who loves Koi Carp and Python?
Somewhere, a passion side-project is out there waiting for you.
