“Connection doesn’t play the short game...”
by Loren A. Roberts (guru of multi-hyphenate media)
“Do not expect applause. Accept applause, sure, please do.
But when you expect applause, when you do your work in order to get (and because of) applause, you have sold yourself short. When your work depends on something out of your control, you have given away part of your art. If your work is filled with the hope and longing for applause, it’s no longer your work -- the dependence on approval in this moment has corrupted it, turned it into a process in which you are striving for ever more approval.”
-- Seth Godin, The Icarus Deception
