Here’s another installment in what’s turned out to be a series of lessons taken from reading Seth Godin’s blog.

My take on a series of posts follows, with a link to the source for each.

About “We are not astronomers”

One person really can make a difference. If everyone realized that, imagine what could be possible.

Here’s a link to the source.

About “Assume that both are true”

It’s not a contradiction to believe in God and science. It’s also possible to believe in both magic and reason.

But shit will never be chocolate.

Here’s a link to the source.

About “Respecting their time”

Do what you want, but don’t waste your time.

Here’s a link to the source.

PS: Dear Seth,

Three words: Strunk and White.

Respectfully yours,
Me

About “Appropriate risk”

Everything in life involves risk. Just don’t do anything completely crazy.

Here’s a link to the source.

About “Copy design”

Before you build it, think about exactly what you’re trying to build.

Then focus on how well you’re doing it.

Here’s a link to the source.

PS: Contains an ad for a copywriting course that’ll only set you back $1,200.

About “The simple market”

You can make money by creating or doing something to make people’s lives better.

And it would help to define what we mean by “better”.

PS: Aren’t “market failures” also “externalities”? And what about “sloth”?

Here’s a link to the source.

To be continued? 🙂
