Perspective on the numbers makes it a lot easier to keep writing when times are shitty. Because what we mean when we say “times are shitty” is that 500 people read our work instead of 1,000. But…

500 PEOPLE MAN! Your grandpa probably didn’t even KNOW that many. Let alone have so many look up to him.

Does your first blog post deserve to be read by more than 12 people? Probably. But that’s why you rewrite it and release it again 2 years later, like Tom did.

Thanks for the perspective my friend!

INFJ ftw, by the way ;)
