If you’re feeling a little lost in your career or just need a little inspiration, help is here. In his latest book Linchpin, Seth Godin spends some serious time explaining a new economy that is in dire need of real emotional labor. As it turns out, that’s great news for anyone willing to listen because it makes them empowered and an indispensable part of any organization. Rockstar sections for me included overcoming the resistance (self-doubt), gift culture and creating a map instead of always following directions, but there’s really a lot to love here. It’s a book that forces us to acknowledge just how silly our excuses are and make things happen. I’m telling all my friends they need to read this.
