Ask yourself six questions before building the Next Big Thing

You have a great new idea for a great new feature or function or service. Before rushing off to create it or implement it, ask yourself…

Who is this feature/function for?
What are the other ways to solve this problem?
Where is the right place for this feature/function?
When is this important to do?
Why is this important?
How will this be support today, tomorrow, and forever?

We often build things without thinking them through. Be your own worst enemy before tackling something, so you know your future self will agree that you made the right decision (or, at least, the best decision you could make at the time).
