#5. I am a Better Writer Than Speaker.
I am not a great speaker.
Most people affiliated with creativity and arts are usually good speakers. The likes of writers, bloggers, journalists, art directors, etc. Individuals with such creative bent are good at extracurricular gigs. They have a ‘different’ personality trait that differentiates them from a mass. Ponytails, tattoos and a certain whacky charm, which makes them strangely cool.

People get curious to know your story only when your achievements are discussed among social quarters. Else it’s just a personal gig that you care about. And it’s okay if someone isn’t too interested to be a part of your journey. For example, My wife isn’t too interested. And that’s okay.
