There are many people I talk to that just want their work to be noticed. I’ve been there, as well. Ten years ago, when I started blogging, I just wanted my work to be noticed, too. I wanted instant recognition, but that didn’t happen.
The problem with this mentality is that there is no such thing as overnight success. Anyone who thinks that they can reach their goal instantly is in for a rude awakening. In my own work, I quickly found out that people weren’t just going to start taking notice without first doing something worth taking notice of. I needed to produce more ideas that mattered, so that’s where I began.
