An instant win for building in public

So I've decided to build in public.

It's not something that comes instinctively to me, but I've been super impressed with examples from @yongfook and @Kevcon80.

Just announcing my decision brought an instant win.

@kasiamanolas shared her insights which helped accelerate my thoughts.

And I gained a follower.

Noisy Signal

Ok it's small potatoes but when signal looks like noise we need to look closely with a bit of faith.

    No potato is too small for carb loading 😎

    Exactly. There's no overnight success. Or if there is, the night usually lasted for months or even years.

    Congrats Rab, the first one feels great! I like what @arvidkahl says about consistency, “ I've come to understand consistency being at the core of growth. I've been writing a blog post, sending a newsletter, and recording a podcast every week for a year now. I didn't have an audience, then I had a few people, then a few hundred, and now it's a few thousand.”

    He’s spot on. As others have said each one is a brick stacked. If you’re doing something interesting and honestly sharing and interacting with what others are doing you’ll get followers by default.

      honestly sharing

      Agreed. Key.
