Obvious to You, Non-Obvious to Everyone Else

When I discover something new or gain a fresh understanding, my motivation to write about it is highest in the beginning. However, this enthusiasm tends to diminish quickly, sometimes within a day or a few hours. The topic starts to feel obvious to me, and I assume it’s the same for others.

Writing has taught me that what may seem obvious to me is not always apparent to others. That’s why it’s important to share your work and see what resonates with people. Sometimes, you need to detach yourself from your own perspective and realize that something that may not excite you could be fascinating to someone else.
