Sorry to tell you this…
We don’t care that you’ve devoted hours, days, weeks, months and years on your big important project.
We don’t care about all the money you’ve invested—and lost.
We don’t care about your staff worries, partner problems, investor concerns or band dilemmas.
We don’t care about your manager/agent problems, legal challenges or how much you owe the government.
We don’t care that “luck” has been illusive at best, and things just haven’t gone the way you planned.
We don’t care that you worry and fret so much about getting it right.
And we’re certainly not interested in your excuses, justifications, apologies, alibis or tales of woe.
The only thing we really care about is that you continue to entertain us with your incredible talent. Wow us with your “must-have” products. Enlighten us with your persuasive words, knock our socks off with your extraordinary art, and provide us with worthy services that far exceed expectation.
As long as you keep doing that, you can count on us to follow you to the moon.
