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.
