80 and Getting g-OLDER.....

Two days ago, I noticed I passed the 80th reputation mark on hive and to me, it was a remarkable milestone. I think over time I lost the urge to count milestones because I felt it was just an aspect of recognition that didn't matter in the grand scheme of things. But 80th is a huge milestone and since it was a very remarkable one at that, I felt I had to acknowledge this one. I don't want to go into stats, but it's taken about 5 years and two months. Going from 79 to 80 has taken about 9 months and that's because it's probably a harder milestone to cross. However, it's hardly anything to pay attention to except a metric to show a positive movement, it's a score that improves as proof of the blockchain activity of a hive user.

Virtually every action increases one's reputation score, from engagement to content creation. Although we can say that there are no metrics to measure how some particular efforts in growing one's reputation. For example, people do the legwork that usually aims at improving their network which might or might not reflects on their growth. This is because it's not every effort that yields dividends. Some attempts or intents towards growth eventually fail and because we have taken the positives, it's impossible to measure whether these positives that we're taken would go into improving one's ability to be a better networker, improve their social standing, and even better exposure.

However, the fact that we cannot measure what efforts eventually yield dividends doesn't mean that one should be selective when it comes to effort, this is because when it comes to a place like Hive, your actions and unique ways of approaching trivial and important issues would eventually accumulate over time. There are no actions that are a lost cause. If a particular action doesn't yield instantaneous results, then there's a possibility for a futuristic recompense, and if it doesn't result in any of the two then, one would learn and take positives. For example, people aim at growth with their choice of content, engagement, and even followership, but sometimes our intents and plans never materialize into the results we want.

However making the wrong calls on a place like Hive doesn't signal total failure, because some of these calls are eventually the revelation that leads one to make the right calls. This means that people's intent on growth might result in failure, but failure might mean redundancy stagnancy, or backwardness in a different narrative, but on hive, people hardly fail, because failures are vital learning processes to boost exposure and experience. This is to say that people can afford to be flexible to some particular extent because immobility is the real stagnancy. The reason why I don't take milestones to the heart is that sometimes it might take away one's attention from what is immeasurable by normal metrics.

Some actions are immeasurable because there are no metrics to measure them. For example, the choice to build extended relationships that might transcend to real life rather than chasing the right whale is a choice that we might not be able to measure its prospective consequences or rewards, so also the choice to HODL and grow rather than taking the easy way out. However, there are acts of growth we cannot fathom the sacrifices that come with it and this is because we're aiming at a bigger glory. In the legend of Spartacus, Crixxus was happy that they've slain a large chunk of the Roman army, in the last battle but Spartacus knew that the Main Roman battalion was the goal, had crixxus aligned with Spartacus' goals, history might have written a different story.

This analogy shows that sometimes we aim at futuristic glory and results because the one we have at hand is nothing compared. At the end of the day, the reputation score on Hive is meant to measure the efforts we can easily place figures to. However, I'd like you to also measure or recognize some of the accomplishments that aren't really visible or glamorous but are instrumental to how far we've come as well. Thank you, everyone, for those we've come this far through thick and thin. I'm 80 and getting g-OLDER

Firstly, accept my cordial congratulations for your achievement. It is worth appreciating it

However, I'd like you to also measure or recognize some of the accomplishments that aren't really visible or glamorous but are instrumental to how far we've come as well.

You are right. Not all the achievements can be measured statistically. The non material achievements might be more beneficial to us in various aspects.

About these milestones, I would say that these results are a cumulative effect of efforts put in multiple dimensions. It takes a lot of patience and consistency to reach this level

🥳🥳🥂🥳🥳🥳🥳🎇🎆🎆🎆🥳

Celebration, people of planet earth!!

With my experience with the days of 2go, I know that it gets harder on the way to the top. And to get there, discipline, resilience, and hardwork, among other things, are heavily required for this kind of growth.

You, sir, are an inspiration to many, and particularly myself. I envy adore you for attributes of a great man you display.

Yet, with this considerably trivial but non-negligible milestone, you still shower us with wisdom from a place of experience and understanding. Cheers to 80 years units of greatness and getting g-OLDER!!🍾🥂

I used 2go back in the days, to get to the level of veteran was difficult, but it was fun. Yeah, I like to think these things can be challenging but they're not difficult per se.
As per being an inspiration, I was inspired too, it's a cyclical process here. We all have people who inspires us in big and small ways.

The g-OLDER was suppose to mean GOLDER rather than me saying OLDER. I thought it was creative so I decided to use it.

Thanks for the well wishes, I think you have the capacity to even surpass this.

It indeed is a cyclical process here. Maybe one day I'll inspire people when I get your level. Meanwhile, I'd keep developing myself on the way: there's so much to learn.

Of course, I did get what you meant GOLDER. That's why I used it.😁

I think you have the capacity to even surpass this.

Thanks for believing in me. I'll keep trying to be better everyday at a good pace.

Congrats man Rep 80 is a huge milestone. I wonder how many years it'll take for me to get to such heights.

A few months back I saw someone say there were only 26 accounts with Rep 80 and above. Not sure how many there are now but I'm assuming not much has changed, seeing as it's not easy. Congrats On being One of the first 30 people to get there.

Congratulations. I think the reputation is counted based on the votes so I don't think all action improves that numerical value but I do think it's a great accomplishment. After all, it gets exponentially harder to increase as the values go up. I think it will take a few more years before I even get close to 80.

Yeah I know the reputation is based on votes, I just choose to tap into things that might cumulatively matter as reputations are more of a sentimental milestone for me. As for you, you might take just maybe 2 or 3.

Woooott!!! Congratulations to you Sir, this is indeed a milestone and it wasn't an easy one so it does deserve a celebration. It really took you a while to get to the 80 reputation but you are finally there. I pray for more strength to keep being consistent and dishing out quality contents, you are just doing so well in this aspect and I hope to be like you.

Enjoy the rest of your day sir and please don't forget to send me my cake and by the way I love the images and the g-older, it sounds really cool, hehe.

Looool don't "sir" now, it makes me uncomfortable. Anyways, I appreciate it. It feels huge and I'm glad I finally smelled the 80th rep. I didn't think I would because it was unthinkable for me when I began my journey. Howbeit, it's here finally and it's been made possible by you all here.

Enjoy the rest of your day sir and please don't forget to send me my cake and by the way I love the images and the g-older, it sounds really cool, hehe.

Yeah I had to create a unique image for this milestones (It took me hours) and I finally got it done though.

I know right? At first it will feel like it's something almost unachievable but then you were determined and focused and you got it, hehe.

Oh I see! It's all over the image, it's just too beautiful and it's obvious it has gone through a lot of refining, nice one, it's all for the celebration 🥰.

Congratulations on reaching an 80-rep milestone.

Virtually every action increases one's reputation score, from engagement to content creation. Although we can say that there are no metrics to measure how some particular efforts in growing one's reputation.

Agreed, and this was written with great modesty but truth be told, we can't deny the fact that you excelled in branding yourself to keep your audience coming back for more.

Your reputation benefited more from your originality and open-mindedness. You have always embraced other people's points of view when engaging in your topic. And that is a skill a lot of people struggle to maintain. I have come across great content writers who would be defensive and not see a different point of view as a sign that we may have different life experiences and realities.

You have demonstrated a great EQ when engaging with readers in your content, and most of your work aims to educate and bring awareness which makes it worth reading as one gets to learn something valuable from it. Sometimes it even triggers self-introspection. In my view, having more people willing to engage in your content and looking forward to reading your work has been the major factor that contributed to your reputation and that should be celebrated. We can rely on these qualitative metrics to explain part of what that 80 rep means in your case.

Well done Josediccus! 🌟💫

Well, I like to be further modest by saying I was lucky, I have been lucky, although, some aspect of creativity and resilience when it mattered, but like you've mentioned. I tend to stick to my onions and try out different things. Audience matters a lot to me as well. So I think I try as much as possible to put it into consideration whenever I'm creating.
Thanks for analysing the non-metrical aspect of the reputation as this is what I tend to focus on, even if the upvotes are what have brought the real-time value of the reputation.
Thanks for the well-detailed comment, I appreciate

Hehehe,, your picture and the expression kept me smiling all through the content and I can pinpoint that your caption would be I got there!!! Lol
9 months to cross to a level making it 80 is really too long and much but you are finally here and keep going. That made me curious to ask, what is the maximum limit to the level here on Hive or it keeps going as long as you keep crossing over it?

Congratulations Josediccus on this great milestone and definitely, you are getting g-OLDER 😎🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️

There's no limitations to the reputation I guess. However one of the reasons why we might feel there's a little is that it takes years to get to some reputation and by then one might have lost consistency. As for the image, yeah, I was thinking what creative shot would sell these content well. So I went for these expressions when I was shooting and I'm glad they came out very well. Thank you for the comments and supports.

Yaaaaayyyyy🥳🥳🥳🥳. I was super excited when I saw this, it calls for celebration 🥳🥰.

There are no actions that are a lost cause.

I'm coming to learn this in my months of "figuring things" and like you mentioned, there's no total failure on Hive. I find it amazing how experiences on Hive translate to real life.

5 years, mhen, this is the definition of building. It's awesome that you have real time results to show for the years. It's a great pleasure knowing you, your personality is as unique as your name🤭🥰; permit me to aspire to be like you 🥰😂.

Congratulations to the only Josediccus on earth 🥳🥳🥳, more achievements 💪🏾🤗❤

Woah! Finally at 80 🤩... Honestly speaking, your consistency is unmatched and I admire that. I'm not sure I've seen any Nigerian hiver who's reached this unit on the Blockchain... This makes me really proud and inspired.

Indeed, there are some achievements we tend to overlook but they're unnoticeably significant to our growth. We must learn to acknowledge and celebrate them too.

Cheers to 80 and gOLDER Joe! ❤️🥂

Yes o, finally 80 after many months on 79, it's finally come. Well, there are many Nigerian accounts on 77, 78 and so, so they're not far behind from 80 as well. So it's time. It's takes a crazy amount of time, I must tell you. Thank you again.
