One of the interesting tweet I saw from Sahil Lavingia ( the CEO from Gumroad ) recently.
How to make a really good painting: make a few hundred really bad paintings.
How to write a really good article: write a few dozen really bad articles.
How to succeed: fail a lot.
It really takes a lot of fail to success, overnight success most of the times are marketing purpose. It just that no one like to report about how you grind and failure, people prefer good news and suddenly pop up success. That's why media wrap up those success case with some twist and make it look like an overnight success.
A good example for myself, start trying to build products since 2018, until today my product hunt launch never more than 50 votes, there is the case that I launch a product for half of the years but no member signup at all.
When there are people ask me how to succeed? my answer will be - fail a lot and don't give up if you sure this is what you want.
