Thanks Mohamed El Mahallawy!
It’s tough to say where my inspiration comes from exactly, but I think it’s a combination of several things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about things, creating things, and consuming things. In the process of doing that, certain ideas will surface that I find interesting and (just as importantly) I think can help or interest other people.
In the case of this article about attention, I was thinking about why my posts had attracted so much attention and if there were lessons I could take from that which might help others. That’s what inspired the post.
