If you are looking for a story of instant success, then move onto the next tab. Nothing to see here!
If otherwise you are in for the long term, then you might want to read on.
The TLDR is simply that finally, everyday.app has been featured as App Of The Day on the AppStore for several countries!! 🔥🎉🎉
- 1172 days since I made public the first version of the web app.
- 965 days since my IndieHackers interview
- 666 days since I released the first version of the mobile apps. (Lol, the number of the beast!)
- 562 days since reaching #2 on ProductHunt
- 155 days since, wait deja vú, reaching #2 on ProductHunt again! 😄
The point being... that I didn't start yesterday. I just did a little bit every day, for a very long time.
Of course not every day has been equally productive (especially when you have a lot of support emails piling up 😄) but that doesn't matter. Compounding progress and keeping the momentum is what matters in the long term. And I'm happy to start feeling like I've arrived to that long term when things start to happen without me pushing for them alone. Today, work that felt meaningless before is adding up to something beautiful to experience. Today, everyday.app is the App Of The Day! 🎉🎉
Every little piece of work and effort, builds up, and sometimes, the return dowsn't show immediately. So keep shipping, 'do the ting' and also.. 'do the marketing', EVERY DAY!!
