Write your own book. Don't look up from that. Ignore the industry, it is always changing, you'll never figure it out. Just write the book you want to write and send it out there... Run your own race. Like I always told my children on track day, you're gonna lose looking around at the others in their lanes, just focus straight forward and run your race...if it's to be, it will be. Do your best. :)
