5 simple steps by Dave McClure to 100% focus

Today's hack
The 5-step approach on how to focus 100% only on the features that really matter (by Dave McClure)...

Have you fallen into a trap of adding this new awesome feature, and that, and another...
And eventually seeing your customers leave because your product is too complicated.

The best way to stay clean, simple, and deliver maximum value, is by giving 100% focus to only your core features.

But how to find them?

Here's a simple approach by Dave McClure (founder of "500 Startups"):

1. Stop adding new features.
2. Take one of the features away every week.
3. When your users start to scream, you found your core feature.
4. Bring the feature back... only better.
5. Continue taking away all the features one by one until you have only core features.
