If I were to compare myself to Michael Hyatt, I would feel pretty inadequate. Michael’s “Intentional Leadership” blog has more than 365,000 total subscribers. I have 41 (as of this writing).

His blog averages more than 302,000 unique visitors per month. Mine averages 164.

Michael has nearly 167,000 Twitter followers. I have 287.

Sounds pretty depressing doesn’t it? Well, it isn’t depressing at all.
