When I quit my job and started bootstrapping my products I remember reading Rob Walling’s book, “Start Marketing the Day You Start Coding”. For someone who was at the beginning of his journey, the book was a gold mine. I became a Rob Walling fan, so I did what every fan would do - I read all of his blog posts.
In his article Why You Should Re-architect Your Career to Amplify Your Strengths he writes:
If you’re not a good writer and don’t enjoy it, don’t start a blog
Well, I was always a crappy writer and never enjoyed it. Then one day I learned that it’s a mandatory skill for business. So I read a book and a few tutorials. Steadily I learned how to write and I learned to love it. Recently I started receiving great testimonials:
A 180-degree transformation in one year.
You’ll probably hate dancing if you have a poor partner.
You’ll probably hate hiking if you pick boring hillocks.
You’ll probably hate programming if you chose a lame language.
When your conditions change, it may be worth retrying the things you used to hate.
