It’s easier when no one cares

The pressure steps up when people actually start getting interested.

When no one is listening, you set your own standards of quality — it’s an internal process.

When the audience grows, the external pressure grows with it.

You’re not just conscious of your own expectations — you start to think about your audience’s expectations instead.

Changing what you do to suit your audience’s expectations may result in a stronger version of what it is your doing.

But, if you gained an audience doing what you’re doing, your focus needs to be on continuing to do that — not what you think they want you to do.

You own expectations must come first.

Only when you are happy with what you’ve done do you then start to wonder if your audience’s expectations can help you to improve it.
