In the past, as a direct response copywriter I used to worry almost every day.
- What if my client does not like my work?
- What if it bombs?
- What if I’ve missed some errors there?
- What if I could have done a better job?
- What if I don’t get paid?
For this reason, I have grey hair. I’m 27.
For all intents and purposes, my intentions were good. I expected a lot from me. I have an A type personality and I’m not patient with other people’s mistake … especially mine.
However, eventually I’ve discovered that worrying about the results that your work produces is the most useless and soul destroying activity you can engage in. Why?
Think about it for a second. I post this. Can I force you to read it? To like it? To comment on it? No. I don’t control this. This is not Orwell’s 1984. I don’t have a mind controlling device. All I can do is do my best. Is to write, post and see what happens.
