I’ve read the first two books and am midway through the Great Rat Race Escape .

I know the previous books touched on the bad idea is it to follow ones “passion” but I was already into it by the time I was introduced to the books.

My website (which is my passion) does provide value via content and I’ve carefully found the problems to solve and tried not to be like the many others doing the same which is way it has been making money.

Ideally I’d like to align what I’m doing per the advice in the book. So I guess my reason for the post is thoughts on that and if I need to perhaps to take a more niched route within this passion and keep the focus on the the challenges that lie within that.

Hopefully that made sense lol.

Looking forward to the feedback.

Be lead by value skew...

Your intense passion of the process or industry is irrelevant.
Your intense hatred of the process or industry is irrelevant.

In other words, try to strip away your personal feelings and get down to providing the most value to your audience. That way, you won't be misled by passion, dislike, or any other feelings that might dissuade your from the critical paths.

It sounds like you are making some good progress, so congrats.

Thanks for replying MJ, I can't begin to tell you how much that means and is appreciated.

Now I think I understand it fully. It's not about what I want, it's about what the audience wants and that I think that is why thus far my site has been making progress.
