The famous Chinese philosopher, Laozi, said that a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step. And he’s absolutely right. The proverb nails the essence of every important goal we set in life because even the longest and most difficult journeys have a starting point. The secret is to take one step at a time.
This proverb is a perfect representation of each learning journey.
It all starts with the decision to start learning and a goal in mind. Some people only want to learn a few words and phrases to impress their friends, some want to be able to have basic conversations in a new language while others want to go all the way to being fluent. Whatever the goal, the secret is to take baby steps until you get there.
The proverb is a great piece of inspiration for Mondly as well. We started with a baby step 3 and a half years ago when we decided to launch our iOS app. Soon after we launched a feature that was going to become the catalyst of Mondly’s success and the most popular feature among our learners: the free daily lesson.
Back then, we had the ambitious goal of reaching 1000 free daily lessons. Like every big goal, it felt overwhelming, but we decided to take one step at a time and make it happen. Today, we are thrilled to share with you some fabulous news: we reached our 1000th free daily lesson! 🏆🎉
It was a long, but beautiful journey and we enjoyed every single step.
The good news is that the journey continues. Like every other milestone we reach in life, there always a next milestone that’s even bolder. For us, the next milestone is 3000 free daily lessons. It will take us 5.5 years to reach it, but we are committed to bringing you new daily lessons for years to come. The first step on this new journey starts tomorrow, so join us on our journey by committing to complete at least one Mondly lessons every day.
