A few of my favorite Seth Godin Blog posts- part 1.

Thanks for leading

Quote from post: "It's uncomfortable to stand up in front of strangers.
It's uncomfortable to propose an idea that might fail."


The initiator    

Quote from post: "But initiating is rare and valuable and essential."


"I don't have any good ideas"

Quote from post: "It's your choice about whether or not you do anything with them [ideas], but please don't tell me you don't have any good ideas."


Validation is overrated

Quote from post: "If you have a book to write, write it. If you want to record an album, record it. No need to wait for someone in a cubicle halfway across the country to decide if you're worthy."


Do you need a permit?

Quote from post: "The accepted state is to be a cog. The preferred career is to follow the well-worn path, to read the instructions, to do what we're told. It's safer that way. Less responsibility. More people to blame."









  1. Ah, great! I find this one particularly relevant:
    "If you have a book to write, write it" - and here we are blogging! Blogging is giving me an outlet!

  2. Nice stuff. Simple ideas and observations are very powerful. Thought you might find this Seth Godin Comic of interest. http://bit.ly/i2BCxS
