There Is No Such Thing as a New Idea, and That’s Ok!

Mark Twain once wrote that “there is no such thing as a new idea” and quite frankly I’m starting to agree with him.

I’ve spent the last month or so actively trying to come up with some ideas for projects/ blog posts to work on that would be interesting and useful. The issue I’ve run into is that almost every time I come up with something, I give it a quick search only to find out that it’s already been done (sometimes many times over). That means another idea goes on the pile to be abandoned since “there’s no point in doing it anymore I guess”.

Well that’s not a fun feeling to have.
