Successful People – Seth Godin

   Seth Godin is an American author and entrepreneur. His book Linchpin was named by Business Week one of the 20 best books by the most influential thinkers in business (Wikipedia). I must admit I haven’t read any of his books, but I’ve watched this episode of Impact Theory and I got inspired to search for more things about this guy.

   If you look at that wiki page about him, you’ll see he writes like a maniac and most of his work is awesome, so he is a great maniac writer. I love his insights about how important the quality is so much important and that we should always do the best we can to help others. I’ve noticed this being a common thing about these successful people. The most appreciated have this mindset oriented on how can they do the best to help other people, not money. Making a good impact and changing people’s lives are the core goals for these people.

     You can find below a video made by Evan Carmichael with his view about Top 10 Rules for Success that Seth Godin applies in his life.

   I love the most the first rule because I find it very important for us to live the life we want, not the one other people want. What rule(s) do you love the most?

  1. Definitely the first rule. I’m all about doing it my way.

    I once had a publisher say, “We love the book! If you’d just rewrite it in closed third person we’ll publish it!”


    “Seriously! Just write it from Anna’s perspective only and we’ll make it a hit.”

    “No, thanks, I need it to be from both perspectives to make it the story it is.”

    You like the way I write or you don’t. There is no in between (though there are varying grades of how much you like it. 😉 )

    1. I agree with you. As long as you love how the finished product it is, it would be better to change the publisher, not the product.
