It is hard work to keep a non-linear brain slightly contained that is primed to see seemingly endless opportunities in all directions.

How can you measure whether an idea is good or bad?

Only by trying it and seeing how it plays out. I would recommend changing "good" with the questions: is it working, and is it for me/us? That usually provides the answer.
