Stop Watching the Scoreboard, Play the Game

by bxrtley

After making the commitment to hit “Publish” every single day, I’ve gotten more traction in one month than over the last six. After seeing those stats, I was motivated to keep going, but also to reach higher levels of readership. And even though it’s still too early to figure out what these numbers mean, I became tempted to write for higher figures instead of honest fulfillment. So here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to stop looking at my stats page for 30 days. I’m just gonna write. Because when you’re busy counting numbers, you’re idle playing the game.
