It’s a Seth Godin line. I love his thinking on this. If you want to read a post about it – check it out here. We are culturally programmed to wait till we are chosen. That was the way it … Continue reading
I had a conversation yesterday about this idea. We were talking about just the news of the week, and the comment that ended the conversation was Fear Sells. I read this morning in Seth Godin’s blog, and he has written … Continue reading
I shipped. If you have no idea what that means, you have to check out Seth Godin’s post on shipping. The basic idea is to complete a task and do something. Whether you are creating, drawing, writing, or shaping, you … Continue reading
If you’ve read any of Seth Godin’s books lately, you have probably read about how you need to fight the resistence. Steven Pressfield also talks about the resistence, and I think Seth might have gotten the idea from him. It … Continue reading
So Seth Godin wrote about how the Internet as Envy Amplifier. The Internet amplifies everything. It creates a caricature of you. It is a “safe” place to explore those aspects of identity. If you’re shy, you can be internet extroverted. … Continue reading
Society isn’t kind to those who don’t fit in. We ostracize, we call names, we harass. - Seth Godin in Poke the Box. As soon as I read that, I immediately thought about some of my posts – Be Unique, … Continue reading
I heard Seth Godin say that we have the technology to continually be connected every hour of the day. I have heard Leo Laporte talk about Twitter being this megaphone where everyone is talking and no one really is listening. … Continue reading
I was working through my Google Reader today and came across a post from Seth Godin entitled Running away vs. running toward. Here’s the post. I love the question – Are you chasing or being chased? Are you leading or … Continue reading
I straight stole this from Seth’s Blog – check the original post here.
He asks tons of question – 16 to be exact and number 13 was the one that caught my attention:
Is perfect important? (Do you feel the need to fail privately, not in public?)
He was connecting perfect with failure, and more importantly, he didn’t give an option for not failing – just asked though if you need to fail privately or publicly.
Failure is not a bad thing. It’s a great question. The insight into public or private failure is key. I think sometimes in leadership – you can’t choose – so fail well.
I read Seth Godin’s blog. If I had to chose one, I think that it’d be his. I enjoy it. He has some pretty interesting ideas. Typically, he writes about marketing and leadership, and the one time that he writes about Higher Education – the industry I am in – he tells it exactly like it is. You should read his 5 reasons. He might be right.
There’s no way that I can summarize it, you’re just going to have to check it out for yourself. He addresses the “disintegration of education” – I love that line. It’s so true though. We need to work hard at developing leaders and problem solvers. Check out the post.
I previously posted about a free digital copy of Radical Careering and a free audio book of Chris Anderson’s Free, and I have already shared this in a previous post, but you can also get Seth Godin’s book Tribes as a free download. Click here for it.
My last post was about judging a book by it’s cover.
I was reading through my rss reader and came across a post by Seth Godin – kinda about this idea. Let’s face it, we get all of our ideas from Seth any way – but Seth doesn’t care. Thanks Seth.
