“We focused too much on what we wanted to bring to the world. We needed to pay attention to what the world wanted from us.” Ivan Zhao, Co-founder of Notion
It's a fascinating post about the early days of Notion, a tool I've started to become far more dependable on and really love it's flexibility. I like the above quote from Ivan, however later in the post, he says something that I think is contradicting to the above statement:
“The market is huge — everyone with a computer.”Ivan Zhao, Co-founder of Notion
The market is everyone that has a need for a tool like Notion. My wife has a computer but would never use a tool like Notion, nor would my dad. The ultra corporate people all have computers, most of them will most likely never adopt a tool like Notion. To say that their market is everyone with a computer is like saying that Porsche's market is everyone that needs to be transported from A to B.
