Product vs distribution
Great read!! I resonate with the example of Ecosia!
Here's my learning memo to myself: https://glasp.co/#/kazuki/?p=W6p3tbHeRwkeWDCZ334J
Great read. I like the framing of asking if it could serve 1,000 more users. Founder who bias toward both product and distribution will win. Can't be either/or anymore.
This is a great read!
I can't agree more with "A product isn't great because it’s great. It's great because people can't help but bring others to it. That's when you know you’ve got something. That's when you're not just playing the game, but changing it." and "Small mindset shift, big difference."

Love it. Thanks. Transform customers into brand ambassadors by providing them with a purpose that surpasses the mere functionality of your product. Instead of merely creating products, strive to build a meaningful mission and watch as your product soars above the waves, carried by the winds of mission's success.
It appears that you have rediscovered a wisdom advocated in the book "Expert Secrets" that emphasises the importance of "starting a movement" and letting your product naturally rise as a result. Find a meaning in your product that is deeper than the problem-solution fit, and you've hit the bull's eye.
“Distribution by Demonstration” - pure genius 👏
