Ignore everybody

Can you?

I was introduced to @gapingvoidart by a tweet from @jaishankarj
about the book Ignore everybody.

I thought it was a casual read but then I was hooked. First thing I noticed was "You were getting 25% free to read and then you could take your buy decision."

I read the 37 quotes in one go. Then I wanted to get insights into more and went ahead and read the rest of the stories attached to the quotes.

The ones that touched me were
  1. Nobody cares. Do it for yourself.
  2. The idea doesn’t have to be big. It just has to be yours.
  3. Worrying about “Commercial vs. Artistic” is a complete waste of time.
  4. Everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb.
  5. If your biz plan depends on you suddenly being “discovered” by some big shot, your plan will probably fail.   
  6. Which ones touched you, please leave in comment.
Then I was mesmerised by the cartoons for their simplicity and straight face. They were cryptic at times but the words charmed. I am more attracted to written word than a rough sketch and so I was hooked to the art because of the words it carried.

I read his bio and now I have become his follower. Do you follow @gapingvoidart.
