493: Sabbatical Episode: What if I Have Nothing Worth Saying and No One Reads What I Write?
You haven’t written that book, or started that blog or podcast you’ve wanted to start, because you fear you don’t have anything worthy to say. I mean, you kind of think you have something worthy to say, but what if other people don’t think so? What if they don’t pay any attention to you at all? “Worthy” is another way of saying “valuable”. But value is subjective. Information can be worthless to one person and invaluable to another. This means you don’t get to determine what is valuable to someone else. Only they can decide what is valuable to them. We all have wisdom to share. Even the things that seem mundane, or uninteresting, to us can be novel to others. It’s not up to you to decide what’s valuable, it’s up to you to write.
