Seth Godin Changed My Life

You think I’m kidding when I write this, but I’m not. Between the presentation he gave at the LinkedIN conference last Thursday in New York and his book “The Dip” I feel like I see the light. Yeah, crazy, I know! But the whole book is about knowing when to keep going and knowing when to quit. I’m awful about knowing when to quit on something… I don’t officially quit. I just…. wander away for a little while. I keep telling myself that I’ll come back to whatever it was that I was working on (short stories, knitting, drawing, yoga, blogging… you see my point…)

Well, after reading this, I honestly felt like it was OK to take some of those projects or activities and say “I’m not willing to put the time into doing that enough for me to be amazing at it. So its best for me to just not do it at all.”

I normally am not the type to gush about a book, and suggest that everyone I know read it, but this one I do.

Buy. Read. Change.
