I love your articles. You are probably the only “leadership” writer that I read religiously. I can see why others love your articles. You are so right about the time horizon to success. People forget that it doesn’t happen overnight, or even in a year, two years.. sometimes 10 years. I just became a writer this year. I’m hoping to make just enough so that I can pursue my passions of writing without too much life pressure. But, otherwise, you are right, the only way to make it is to do the work and just hope for the best.
