If I’m being honest…

Sometimes, I wish my research articles were more highly read and cited, that my blog had more subscribers, and that I had more opportunities to do keynotes.

Then I remember why I went into this field, and I return my focus on teaching my students well and developing long-term relationships.

I’ll keep doing the other things because I enjoy them, but I have to keep reminding myself that those things don’t matter.  People do.

Yet, I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a constant struggle. I hate the attention culture.
