Or are you not Bud Fox in Wall Street?
But I’m not going to get into Wall Street – I did that in my book SEO & 80s Movies…probably one of the biggest flops I’ve written, for now.
No, I’d rather talk about what drives you, and perhaps what doesn’t. In other words, I’d rather not talk about my own failures and inadequacies, I’d rather talk about yours.
Because honestly, I have a feeling you’re one of those that wants some shortcuts, or wants to sit on your laurels, letting success come to you.
Great, please hit the back button right now and never come back to this site.
Because the target audience here isn’t pansies and it isn’t those that need their hand held – it’s people that want to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work that needs to be done to make that success happen.
Successful people don’t find time, they make it.
How many hours are in a week? I bet you don’t know. Maybe you can get up to 72 hours but the jump to 96 is a bit harder, and any kind of math needed to get up to…
There are 168 hours in a week, and if we take away 8 a day for sleep you’ve got 112 hours.
So what are you doing with that time? Dicking-around on social media, posting your thoughts on writing, complaining to your other writer friends on forums and other time-sucks?
Good luck with that – in my book we’d call that failure, and I’m not the type that’s gonna give you a pat on the ass and say ‘nice try.’
Actually, I won’t notice at all you see, because I’m driven. I’m getting up each day and little slights or problems or mishaps or stumbles don’t matter much to me, not yours and certainly not mine. Or was I just not supposed to get up tomorrow and do it all again?
That’s what we call giving up, and you’re perfectly entitled to do that – I don’t care. I guess the real question is, do you?
What drives you?
