BOSTON—This Friday, leaders in the fields of art, writing, and photography collectively agreed that if your work was any good, you’d already be famous.
According to one professor who spoke under conditions of anonymity, “It’s impressive how long you’ve been committed to this one pursuit given the negligible impact you’ve made, I will say that. Maybe channel that passion into something useful for society, like welding.”
While you had one social media post almost go viral, this does not warrant dedicating your life to becoming an influencer, another expert added. “The algorithm does not think you are worthy of attention and neither should you.”
