´ The Justice of Milestones -
August 19, 2016

Reaching your first 100 downloads is just as awesome as reaching 250’000. Getting your first money from any new source you had to work for feels more amazing than getting 10x that much money from a regular job. We get significant joy out of reaching milestones no matter how they compare to other people’s milestones or to what is objectively outstanding. That is the great justice of milestones: our level of happiness is not tied to size. It is determined by having to work for something that is exciting to you and persevering until you get there.
