focusing on what matters

It’s always interesting to  me to watch authors focusing on things that do not move their life forward.

For me, if what I’m doing doesn’t bring me happiness, doesn’t make the world a better place or doesn’t move me toward my goals, then it’s a waste of time.

I’m entertained and sometimes annoyed by authors who spend hours, days, weeks, years, commenting about what another author is doing that they disagree with or whole posts about grammar rules or things that their readers don’t care about.

It’s clear that the people that care about those matters are them. Good. While they’re focusing on that, I have more time to focus on bigger matters that actually affect my lives and the people around me.

I’d rather focus on what my readers care about. They’re the ones that are helping me achieve my dreams at the end of the day. They don’t care about whether or not I’m using passive voice, or if I’m using this marketing technique or that.  Nor do they care if I’m bitching about Amazon’s latest change.

At the end of the day, they care about whether the story I’m giving them brings them satisfaction. And that’s what I focus on too.
