WHAT DO BARACK OBAMA, JOHN STEWART, MICHAEL CONNELLY, BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, JOE PATERNO, JOHN GRISHAM, SETH GODIN, MAGIC JOHNSON, MARK CUBAN, AND STEVEN SPIELBERG HAVE IN COMMON? by Art Smukler, author & psychiatrist

What they have in common is exactly what I don’t have, name recognition.

I wondered what would happen if, as an experiment, I listed famous people (who I’m interested in) and how that would reflect on my blog. Would some subscribers unsubscribe? Would I get more subscribers? Would people buy my books? Would they burn and erase them? Would nothing out of the ordinary happen?

As Seth Godin wrote, if  you don’t take risks, probably your goals won’t be achieved.

While you’re here, even though you didn’t know you were actually going to visit, please check out the posts on Inside the Mind of a Psychiatrist. Some may be of interest, some may be helpful, but all were written to share what my views are regarding the world, the mind, therapy, and the human condition.

Also, please come back and visit. I’ll let you know how my experiment turned out.
