After seeing a Linkedin post of Jaseem, a dynamic CEO of an iconic explainer video company, WowMakers – I decided to write about Law of Averages and how it impacts whatever we do. In one of his LinkedIn posts, he explains how he writes posts every day on what he encounters at work and the learning from it. While doing posts regularly, one of the posts got viral (almost 100k views and thousands engaging with the post). This happens in all the work we do. It is not because that post is exceptional, not undermining the quality of the post or the compounding of skill in writing a shareable post. It is all about doing things regularly. It is a marathoner’s gain.
The more you do something, the more chances to hit the gold. When you scatter the energies it never happens. So as Gary Vaynerchuk, that insane internet superstar, says – If you love making videos, don’t count your YouTube subscribers every day. Keep making good video content. Make 100 videos. You will see the magic. It is not wishful thinking or gambler’s fallacy. It is the power of compounding and patience in super action.
In the world of instant gratification, this is a hard game for many. 95% of people leave what they do just before the miracle. They lack the willpower to stay, do it – again and again till it strikes the jackpot.
In this world of too many opportunities which can distract you from what matters, sticking to the game requires tremendous stability.
This is the essence of ‘Law of Averages’ though technically in Wikipedia terms it looks like this.
