Logic Of The Day: 17.10.2018.
I was fortunate enough to get a review copy of Ryan Holiday’s newest book The Perennial Seller: The Art of Making Work that Lasts. It’s an important and timely message for a generation fueled by clickbait, life hacks, and impatience. If there’s one thing that I truly appreciated about Ryan’s new book, it’s that his view is long term.
By the time one book comes out he’s already working on the next one. He’s truly focused on the process not the prize, and understands that your cumulative output is more important than any individual piece. If you want to build a career, not just get paid once for your work, commit to mastering your craft and building what Ryan would call a Perennial.
There Are No Shortcuts
When the reader who inspired this article wrote me, I was a bit frustrated that despite reading 100’s of books and interviewing 700 people, I couldn’t point him to any one resource that would be the solution. That’s because there are no shortcuts. Everybody’s path will be different. I know plenty of people who have started later than I did who have surpassed me in revenue and audience size. But once I started to compare less and create more, that’s when I started to gain momentum.
