I've always loved the line from Robots movie, "See a need, fill a need". So you can start by trying to solve a problem that you yourself face.

In the past, I've also arranged for meetings with my clients and asked them what are their pain-points in their day to day work. Perhaps they work a lot in tedious spreadsheets which could be automated or made easier through building a simple app.

Love the phrase! I used to follow this moto as well but sometimes I really want to play with new tech but I'm not aware of any needs.
