How Much Are You Desperate?
A few days ago, I got the message from the fellow Twitter member. It sounded directly like this, word by word.” I would gargle bleach to get you to check out the free sample of my book. Don’t make me do it!” What would you think about it? First thought what came to me, it was that this person is desperate. Bleach makes holes in sheets if you do not dilute with water. I wonder if the human body could be resistant to this type of experiment. To make this sacrifice regarding the book, it is worth? Maybe, but is does not sound appealing. How after this action you can do the presentation of your book? Yes, I know it was just a manner to attract attention.
Content Inside Versus Outside
It is a good old saying. Do not make decisions about the book by her cover. It works with everything: with people, food, houses and animals. How often we jump from joy and buy trendy, colorful clothes and later see that quality lasts one washing machine circle. Sometimes we decide about people from clothes, cars or bank accounts. If it would be so simple, we would not have such beautiful stories as Beauty and the Beast or movie Ratatouille. I remember the story about lift operator. He complained that a man with bicycle takes all space in the elevator room. He resisted to serve him. Later on, it was cleared that this man was Steven Spielberg. I guess that he did not make trouble, but just he looked to casually compare with other tenants.
It is the same with books. There so many great books written in the world, but we do not have the ability to read them. Time is limited. To reach our goals, be best in our lovable areas, takes time and preparation. We can read just these books or reference manuals, which help us reach new levels, enrich and give us knowledge how to expand our business. Maybe my mentioned Twitter follower was so sad that nobody reads her creation. I did not believe that bleach would be gargled for real. In this case, would be better to read feedback from her readers. If somebody is looking for the topic, he or she will find needed information. To read just for reading, it is a waste of time.
Time Proves Worth of Creations
How many are artists, writers, actors famous relatively short period? Time passed and next generation does not look back. Why? Because it did not pass time test. What was great before one or few hundred years, will be great today and in future. It does not matter how loud you would talk about comfort and neediness of skyscrapers to save space, boulevards in Paris, London or Chicago, surrounded by trees and magnificent mansions attract visitors and create the cozy environment. Historical buildings, which reflect stability, wealth are proof of timeless human wish to strive for the better life. Overall, what people create, it must serve to public needs. Beauty makes us feel relaxed. It inspires us to enjoy life, smile more and maybe create something that lasts longer compare to wish to attract attention in drastic ways.
