Side Note : I think it’s fascinating how the internet as made a lot of people believe that growth is usually viral as opposed to organic. Overnight successes, blogs going from an unknown status to million(s) hits in a few month, startups becoming successful in months : a few examples. The internet makes this possible but it’s usually NOT the case. Growth is usually slow and organic, nothing happens overnight and successful things are made after a lot of mistakes. Anything viral is usually an outlier and not the norm and should probably never be the reason why to give up.
Probably one of my longest side notes!
