Quotes of the week_Seth Godin

  • You have everything you need to build something far bigger than yourself.
  • When exactly were you brainwashed into believing that the best way to earn a living is to have a job?
  • Ideas aren’t a sideshow that make our factory a little more valuable. Our factory is a sideshow that makes our ideas a little more valuable! 
  • If you're remarkable, then it's likely that some people won't like you. That's part of the definition of remarkable. Nobody gets unanimous praise -- ever. The best the timid can hope for is to be unnoticed. Criticism comes to those who stand out. Playing it safe. Following the rules. They seem like the best ways to avoid failure. Alas, that pattern is awfully dangerous. The current marketing "rules" will ultimately lead to failure. In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is failing. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible.
  • Cogs see a job, linchpin see a platform. Every interaction, every assignment is a chance to make a change, a chance to delight or surprise or to touch someone.
