Showing up and doing the work

March 20, 2018 at 10:04pm

I tweeted this earlier and thought it might be useful as a repost here in case anyone wanted to talk about this more.

This is a real chart of our growth on Spectrum:

Spikes are fun. But the consistent work put in every day pays off with the most meaningful long-term results.

That "patience" section is more of a reminder for myself. Long spans of down days are incredibly stressful and introduce all sorts of doubts that are hard to deal with. That's why co-founders are so important - Bryn and Max help keep things in perspective.

Also it’s way easier to share this stuff when things are up and to the right. A good reminder to never compare personal results with public achievements of others.
