Fascinating how many Deadheads found a reason to criticize the Grateful Dead’s farewell concert tour (example).
Folks, it’s a concert by a band that played more than 2,500 concerts over the years. And this time you can watch a live stream for 20 bucks. About as uncontroversial as you can get.
But here’s the real lesson: No matter how good you do, someone will find a reason to complain about it. Sometimes those people look and sound like fans, but they’re not.
Ignore the noisy critics — they are a distraction and a trap.
The secret to success: Dedicate your energy to finding your happy-but-quiet fans, and find out how you can make them happier.
