Seth Godin Tribes

A few months ago, I enjoyed reading the Seth Godin Tribes book.

Recommend. This is the only person I can call a business guru.
Because he does not teach how to do, but inspires.

A few quotes:

Interesting side effect: creating products and services that are remarkable is fun. Doing work that’s fun is engaging. So not surprisingly, making things that are successful is a great way to spend your time. There you go: initiative = happiness.

Participating isn't leading.
Showing up isn't sufficient. Friending ten or twenty or a thousand of people in Facebook might be good for your ego but it has zero to do with any useful measure of success.
*
Change isn't made by asking permission. Change is made by asking forgiveness. Later.
*
The easiest thing is to react. The second easiest thing is to respond. But the hardest thing is to initiate.
*
I think most people have it upside down. Being charismatic doesn't make you a leader. Being a leader makes you charismatic.
