Other Peoples Business is NONE of your Business

I often see (read, here, whatever) people commenting (typically complaining, moaning) about some other peoples latest business/venture and it drives me crazy. Instead of focusing energy on what other people are doing you’ll be so much more productive focusing on your own stuff.

Everybody is on a different business path and at a different stage (if you’re on the same path as the masses you probably want to differentiate). Comparing your journey to somebody else is often counter productive. What you do when you’re at page 316 is very different to what you did when you were at page 1.

I’m not saying don’t follow other folk (hey you’re reading this), but focus on the stuff that benefits you, the stuff you don’t like or agree with just ignore it, don’t waste your energy spending time on it. Mind your own business.
