“The more you give, the less you need.” – Stephen Richards
When I am out on the road, I meet a lot of people who read the blog, and I am always thrilled by these conversations. Blogging is my favorite part of my job, it’s the work I love the most, and curiously it’s the hardest. I love it to a fault. I assume I’ll do it my whole life; I’ve been at it for years now.
The other day in Colorado Springs, someone pointed out that I could probably charge for my blog, that I could possibly find a sponsor or two, or even sell some ads.
What I said (as best as I can recollect) was this: Not only can I not imagine charging for my blog, I’d probably pay you to read it. I am in debt to you.
Every time you read something I write here, you are giving me a gift of time and attention, which are getting more precious by the moment. You have more choices every day, especially digital ones, and it’s harder and harder to find the time. I know this, and I am humbled and grateful that you opened this up again today to see what I’m thinking about.
I’m doing my very best to make your attention worth it.
Let’s all agree that having someone’s attention is the greatest compliment they can pay us, and let’s all consider how we can make it time well spent.
So thank you, and have a great weekend.
