You don’t need thousands to understand your work. You simply need the intended people to be impacted by it.
Large followings aren’t needed. Only impact.
Social following isn’t proof of anything. It only shows you know how to play a game designed by computer programmers.
It doesn’t show impact.
Verified account status, big-name publishers, large stages – these are prerequisites for nothing. They’re the gatekeepers, quickly forgotten.
Culture is where lasting change happens. It’s the heart of your daily work.
Staying true to your work is the only way to reach people, craft culture, and impact learning.
