I recently finished reading Seth Godin’s book Linchpin.

I loved it. It’s packed with loads of useful stuff. Here are just a few of the key ideas:

  • The linchpin is indispensable.
  • Everyone’s an artist now.
  • Real artists ship.
  • There is no map.
  • Make real choices.
  • Never wait for someone to tell you what to do.
  • Make your own map.

The book is a call to action to take responsibility for your work, make yourself valuable, turn your work into an ‘art’, and lead rather than wait to be told what to do.
