My condolences to the families of everyone involved.
Some people say that the tremors could be felt even in far-away Israel and Romania.
(Which is pretty near to me, because I live in Hungary)
Some, like the firm Charlie Hebdo, believe it was an intervention by God himself and that now they “don’t need to send tanks”.
In retaliation, as the news says,
“12 people were killed in Charlie Hebdo offices” for mocking and ridiculing the prophet Muhammad.
Who would’ve thought that this would be the response…
Why am I writing about all this in a newsletter for beginner copywriters?
To shed some light on the fact that horrible events happen inevitably from time to time. And that it’s easy for us far away front the catastrophes to make judgments and become virtue-signaling champions of justice.
It’s easy to distract our eyes with our virtuous selves from the dark realities of our own lives.
- Not having the discipline and willpower required to actually succeed at copywriting and neglect honing our persuasive “edge” every single day
- Not being able to build a portfolio for yourself and hating the “game”, instead of taking a good look at the “player” and recognizing their faults.
- Spending your precious and irretrievable time crying on copywriting forums and groups instead of getting down to business and building yourself as a capable and persuasive copywriter.
Don’t get me wrong.
I’m not trying to belittle the horribly destructive earthquake.
As I said before, my condolences go out to the families involved in this tragic event.
But I would be neglectful not to point out that many people should mind their own business and their state of affairs instead of virtue-signaling on Twitter, distracting others (and themselves) about the rut they’re in.
Maybe this isn’t a “mainstream” opinion.
And you should definitely take it with a grain of sea salt.
But don’t get distracted from your work because of a tragic event that happened 100s of miles away.
I could mention another tragic event right in my neighborhood that people spend way too much time (and money) on, but if I mentioned it, I’d probably be banned faster than a certain bald content creator who now sits in prison.
Some drink for thought.
