My achievements at a glance. Source: Image created by the author.

A lucky(?) break

  • If you have to pick between quantity and quality, pick quantity (surprise). Constantly iterating on a piece means little if you don’t put it out there.
  • You can’t write 30 terrible pieces in a row. Publishing your work makes it open to criticism, letting you learn from your mistakes.

Next came the little wins.

Manifesting the future

I didn’t earn a cent from Medium but I gained a priceless sense of fulfillment.
