Okay, so consider this an addendum.
An astute reader pointed out that my last post was lacking something important. Brian from Lessons in Movement Making left a comment that really hit me. He added that it’s not just about Ignoring the Experts. It’s about becoming an expert yourself, and then taking it to the next level.
And he’s right.
The experts can’t see the future. There are no oracles in any field. No one knows the future. Perhaps only in astrology but you get the point…
The blogging platform is too saturated. The future of blogging is paid access. Become a success blogger. All this advice on how to make money online, create location independent income, and on and on and on…. It’s been heavily written about already- the noise of the internet at its finest.
But get this: The greatest minds have been saying this sort of thing for hundreds of years. The medium may have changed, but the message remains the same.
“The multitude of books is a great evil. There is no limit to this fever for writing; every one must be an author; some out of vanity, to acquire celebrity and raise up a name, others for the sake of mere gain.”
Martin Luther, German Reformation leader, circa 1530s.
Ignore the experts. Become one yourself. Then take it to the next level.
