Deeper ideas in pocket

I wrote about this quote in Hot, but I wanted a way to reference it later.

When you’re new at something, you get excited by trivial or surface things. You have to work through these things to get to deeper things to be interested in.

In building something new, you shouldn’t have just one new interesting / good idea. You should have twenty. It’s great when you have one new good idea, but you should put it in your pocket and save it up.
