There will come a time where those who are unwilling to recognize the importance of attention, will be ignored.
Not just by the consumer, but those people who are trying to teach you how to get it.
It's also possible you're making the attention game out to be more than it actually is.
Your attention journey can and should be as simple as picking one or two mediums/platforms to create in and one or two lines of business to sell.
That's it, it's the consistency and quality in those two disciplines that will win you attention in the end.
