Time, patience, and showing up

Sometimes it takes years before someone becomes a reader.

Gabe Anderson (Gabe the Bass Player) writes a blog post every weekday about music, creativity, and being in a band.

A couple of years ago, Seth Godin talked about him after he had written his 1000th blog post.

I checked out his website to decide if I’d follow him.

I didn’t.

Then in September, Seth mentioned that Gabe had written his 2000th blog post.

I revisited his website. This time I subscribed, and I look forward to his blog post in my inbox.

I don’t know what changed. Did his writing change? Did my interests? Was it a little bit of both?

Who knows?

But if he hadn’t kept all those years, none of it would’ve happened.
