Work in Progress

On one hand – super embarrassing.

On the other hand – a sign of growth. 

Last week I updated a blog I wrote on our company’s website a while back (it’s about how many users there are on each of the large social media platforms, and I updated it to the November 2021 numbers). It was linking to other blog posts I wrote so I went ahead and read them as well to see how I can improve them. 

While reading the blogs, every once in a while I was like “ugh, it would have been much better if you wrote this like that” or “wow, this sentence really needs a better structure for anyone to understand” and “WTF change this now”… well, you get the point 😊

So on one hand, I was a bit embarrassed with myself. On the other hand, it felt reassuring to see that I grew, learnt, and improved. 

Reid Hoffman, founder of LinkedIn, famously said – “If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.”

I guess the same goes for people.

Keep at it, we’re all work in progress.

You win, and then you win!
