Stages of success

Nivi quotes one of the oldies from Arthur C. Clarke,which goes like

“Like all revolutionary new ideas, the subject has had to pass through three states, which may be summed up by these reactions:

  1. “It’s crazy — don’t waste my time.”
  2. “It’s possible, but it’s not worth doing.”
  3. “I always said it was a good idea.”
Similar to this, one of my mentor used to say that their are four states of social reaction for any of new work you starts:
  • When you start people laugh on your work.
  • Further down the line as you progress, people watch your action silently.
  • As you move ahead further, people starts doing the samethings and appreciates your work
  • Same set of people now follows you and become your followers.

Its quite a bit similar to the Chasm Theory by Geoffrey A. Moore which takes into account how market transits from technology enthusiats to the pragmatists and ahead..

Whatsover crux is, perseverance is the key..
