Seth Godin's Top 25

This great post distills the wit and wisdom of Seth Godin into one place. Here are the first few.
1. Have a bunch of good runs before the sun sets. Seth says — “Life is like skiing. Just like skiing, the goal is not to get to the bottom of the hill. It’s to have a bunch of good runs before the sun sets.”
2. Be remarkable. Boring is invisible. Remarkable products and remarkable people get talked about. Seth on remarkable — “How can you squander even one more day not taking advantage of the greatest shifts of our generation? How dare you settle for less when the world has made it so easy for you to be remarkable?”
3. Success is a skill. Seth’s philosophy on success is — “it’s possible to enjoy your job, to do the right thing, to be transparent, to give more than you get and to be successful, all at the same time.” It takes work. Surround yourself with people who are succeeding. You become who you hang with. By surrounding yourself with people who are succeeding, you’ll learn what’s working and what’s not. You can model their success and open doors that you might otherwise not see. Seth on successful people – “”Successful people rarely confuse a can-do attitude with a smart plan. But they realize that one without the other is unlikely to get you very far.”
Read them all here. Seth has been a major contributor to management thinking in the last 10 years and great supporter of entrepreneurs. He is one of the best business commentators of our generation.
