Yardsticks and patience

Ailian Gan believes that it took Seth Godin four years of blogging every day before he found his style and started writing like he does today.

It’s tempting to use that as a yardstick; for me, I’m two years into blogging every day, and hopefully I’ll get there in another two.

The reality is, there’s no great answer to how long it’ll take to get reasonably good at something. Everyone has their own pace and journey. So, it could take me more than four years, it could take me less. It’ll take however much time it needs.

There’s a saying that I like from How to Be More Tree, “Patience isn’t in the waiting, it’s in how you deal with having to wait.”

Here I am, practicing every day.
