Hint: Observing a Skilled Observer Is a Good Place to Start
A WorkLife Lesson: Fintan’s Story: The Timeliness of a Helpful Blog Post
Fintan had self-published his first book. He had loved the process. The writing – getting the words from his head onto the page. The self-publishing – learning everything he needed to know to get the book ready to hit the printing press. He had loved when he had received his first copy – his author copy – he could call himself a writer and an author now – because he had published and sold his work – albeit sales were to his family and friends.
But now what?
How could he get his book into the hands of readers who would enjoy his work?
That was the million-dollar question.
Did he need to work on his social media following?
He had been putting a little effort into this and combined his chosen platforms – which was pretty much all of them – because he didn’t know which platform was best for writers and authors – his following across all platforms was close to 1,000.
What did this mean?
Fintan didn’t know.
Was it good?
Fintan didn’t know that either.
He realised that he didn’t actually know how to be observant in the world of books – the world of writers and authors – the world he wanted his next WorkLife chapter to be part of – the world that was entirely new for him. He realised he didn’t know how to be observant because he didn’t know what to observe that would enable him to understand what he needed to do to get his books into the hands of readers who would enjoy his work.
