Seth Godin's book "Linchpin"

I’m about 3/4 the way through Seth Godin’s latest book “Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?”.

I love it.

Seth’s “linchpins” are unique and creative people who contribute in a highly valuable way to their organizations.

He makes a compelling case for “bring your art to work” and the concept of making a real difference through emotional labor.

“Linchpin” also includes the most practical and in depth discussions of breaking through “resistance” I’ve seen.

Like most of Seth’s work, “Linchpin” is full of quotable quotes. Here are a few:

The Law of Linchpin Leverage: The more value you create in your job, the fewer clock minutes you actually spend creating that value.”

“Art is a personal gift that changes the recipient.”

“Art is the product of emotional labor. If it’s risk free and easy, it’s unlikely that it’s art.”

“Anxiety is about practicing failure in advance.”

You can find information about “Linchpin” and more insights from Seth Godin at his blog here.

You can pre-order at Amazon and other places. “Linchpin” looks to be out by the end of the month.
