I laughed out loud at the irony of reading this quote online – “Being a good writer is 20% hard work and 80% not getting distracted by the Internet” – while I was supposed to be working on my book.
Thanks for calling me out, Internet.
These days, the key to being a good ANYTHING is 20% paying attention to what really matters and working towards it – and 80% not getting distracted by the Internet.
That includes being a good parent, being a good boss, being a good entrepreneur, being a good person, and yes being a good artist.
It’s important to ask ourselves, “Will this matter in the long run? What will?” and that we focus on that instead of on clickbait.
Chase meaning, not clicks.
So, it’s back to writing for me.
How about you? What are you going to return your attention to and work towards that matters more than this?
