Concerning the self-help “spam” on Medium

Being great, being more, is a life struggle and telling people to follow these few simple steps, few simple mantras, to some epic greatness is the most irresponsible of lies.

Just when I started to include a daily scan on Medium in my morning coffee routine, I noticed the exact same thing. My newsfeed is populated (still to this day) with countless self-help articles. I can’t get rid of them. For one eventually insightful article, there’s 20 overly enthusiastic “You can do anything” articles. But I hate to be the one destroying this illusion, but no, you can not do anything. Not by mimicking Steve Jobs diet routine or combing your hair like Richard Branson. Nope.
