I’ve spent time in my life talking about the books I’ve read and all these amazing things that will turn me into a superstar.
The thing is, reading is one thing, applying it is another.
Knowledge is only power when we choose to apply it and keep applying it 100%.
Billions now have the power to hit publish. The internet is bulging at the seams with content.
Does that mean we should?
Will what we say have an impact?
Would we be missed if we didn’t publish?
What responsibility do we have to make the post something of value?
Given there are over 250 million blog sites, what difference will ours make?
How big does the impact have to be?
For me, if it makes a difference to one person, then it is worth it. However, often we do not manage our expectations and we think everything needs to be big and that will lead to disappointment.
That does not mean we can not publish and do even better next time.
Before hitting publish though, we need to ask some questions, as just being able to do something does not mean you should. It needs a purpose. Even if that purpose is to help ourselves get better or to make a difference to a small group of followers.
