Lessons Learned From Seth Godin: Part Five — One Honest Indie

Looks like I’m going to keep this “lessons learned series” going for a bit. Maybe for a year or so (or until I get bored with doing it).

In any case, here are some of my takeaways from reading Seth Godin’s blog.

About “How’d they do it without you?”

Apparently, there are people in this world who believe they’re indispensable. They aren’t.

Here’s a link to the source.

About “Great ideas always sound like they’re far too soon”

If you’re going to be in the game, be in it for the long haul.

And keep the faith.

Here’s a link to the source.

About “We get what the business model wants”

Marshall McLuhan once said, “The medium is the message.”

Now, it seems the media have changed the messages. Providing greater opportunities for expression. And allowing some people to become billionaires. Or cult leaders.

Here’s a link to the source.

About “Urgent cultural change”

Things are changing so fast, it’s almost impossible to keep up.

Sometimes the best response is none at all.

Here’s a link to the source.

PS: From Cal Newport

Work expands to fill the time allotted. Period.

Here’s a link to the source.

About “Negative marginal cost”

You can only give away so much. (I’ll bet Seth hates Amazon, too. 🙂)

Here’s a link to the source.

About “Instead”

It’s easy to change a habit. It’s harder to decide whether to change it.

Here’s a link to the source.

I’d say this series is proof of that last point. 🙂
