That’s Intriguing #7: Why Seth Godin is the Original Linchpin

Seth Godin doesn’t follow the crowd.

He doesn’t even lead the crowd.

He creates a NEW crowd.

His new book Linchpin shows how to add value by moving things forward for yourself and others.

His sage advice?

Don’t wait for instructions. Figure it out. Make it happen.

As Seth says, “Every day I meet people who have so much to give but they’ve been bullied or frightened into holding it back.”

He continues, “You have brilliance in you. Your contribution is essential. The art you create is precious. Only you can do it . . . and you must.”

My advice?

Buy Linchpin. Grab a cup of coffee or tea. Read it and reap.

  1. Sam – Of what I have read, my favorite comment was about picking something you can be amazing at – (paraphrasing) – “so unless you can bowl a 320 game, find a different sport!”
