A few of my favorite Seth Godin posts, Part 2.
Quote: "You can't be offbeat in all ways, because then we won't understand you and we'll reject you. Some of the elements you use should be perfectly aligned with what we're used to."
"The others... Not a little off. A lot off."
Quote: "Apologize; Defer to others; Avoid shortcuts; Tell the truth; Offer kindness; Seek alliances."
The forces of mediocrity
Quote: "Remarkable visions and genuine insight are always met with resistance."
Make something happen
Quote: "Make something happen today, before you go home, before the end of the week."
It's easier to teach compliance than initiative
Quote: "Schools like teaching compliance. They're pretty good at it."
