When that gift comes back to me, in an unexpected way, I enjoy the I did twice as much.” This summarizes the way all got started for me. Thank you Seth.

|I am currently reading Growing Up Digital by Don Tapscott and I can already say that you can add it to your book list too;-)
Today it’s easy to create average stuff for average people. But how to stand out from the mass is more difficult. The hard part is getting people’s attention and their trust. Can you steal my attention? If you do, you won my trust and you get my permission to communicate with me. Congratulations!
Obviously Seth’s words sound straightforward and easy but as you and I know everything comes at a price. Your online success doesn’t happen over night and it takes hard work to win people’s trust. The good news is that with today’s online tools everyone has the opportunity to shine if you are committed, consistent, authentic and helpful.
What are you doing today to win my trust? What’s your story?

Order the book Linchpin by Seth Godin(affiliate) from Amazon.
Bestselling Author Seth Godin says this time it’s personal. The book is a personal manifesto, a plea from Seth Godin to you. Linchpin is about a choice ans it’s about your life. This choice doesn’t require you to quit your job, though it challenges you to rethink how you do your job.
As Seth Godin says: “If you want a job where it’s okay to follow the rules, don’t be surprised if you get a job where following the rules is all you get to do.”
“If you want a job where you take intellectual risks all day long, don’t be surprised if your insights get you promoted.”
ITS YOUR CHOICE – Think about your choice and become indispensable.
