You might experience this too. I often question why I publish or whether anyone is reading any of the thousands of words I write every month. That sort of rumination can gnaw away at your confidence, as you hover over the publish button.
I counter this by choosing to linger on the stories of impact that I hear from readers. Messages and email replies trickle in over the year. It is by no means a flood, but I treasure the stories of how school leaders and teachers have used the ideas I share.
I listen deeply to those stories of impact, and I know every week that my words, my writing, has the potential to change the way, someone sees the world.
As we speak, there are just short of 3000 subscribed readers, and I know a much smaller percentage connects with the issues every week. The numbers do not really matter to me; a single story of impact will keep me writing every week.
If you have a few moments, I would be grateful to know what you value about this weekly newsletter? What resonates with you, and what impact does it have?
