One book might spark some ideas for a few months, but a library full of categorized books can be referenced for generations.
One blog post could last a day, but a site rich with searchable posts is invaluable.
One message to an email list recipient may be instantly deleted, but relevant, interesting emails in repetition create trust and expectation.
One date shows you like to interact with a person, but ongoing pursuit and engagement leads to a loving, thriving relationship.
Keep doing what you’re doing.
You might just be building a worthy library.
