loved it!!!! Seth Godin is acutely aware of what makes people linchpins in their space. This is one of those books that you will read 3 times right off, and never look at life the same way again.
Hits heavy on how value is created and how to be indispensable at creating your art in whatever space that might be.
This book is perfect, beautiful art. It contains a gift of incredible value that will change the recipient. Thank you Seth. I cannot imagine life as I used to view it. DO YOUR ART.....TODAY!!!!!
The ideas and motivational kicks come thick and fast in this great book. I need to listen again to really get the most out of what Seth has to say.
Whether you have a business, a salaried professional and most especially an hourly wage worker, this book is essential reading. Like most of his books, Linchpin is 6-10 years ahead of its time. Businesses and customers still have an industrial view of the world. At the moment the 'cog' is still king. But people are wising up; Linchpin will be as commonplace a term as 'viral marketing' or 'meme.'
Seth please let me know when you write a book on the lottery!!!
so I finished this book my FIRST Seth Godin experience and yes it did resonate with me personally I'm a waiter so this is like gems in my pocket. Gold in your mine so to speak just mind it's wisdom cause it's very unconventional since Seth Godin really be labors the point home. This book is about GIVING your unique gift and making art instead of just showing up to work like a cog in the machine. Be the linchpin alright be big, brash, bold; be Indispensable! Giving is where it's at alright Giving is the Linchpins bread and butter so be open to this books powerful message that is seriously going to be returned to very quickly and reviewed often a I possibly can. without further ado I give you Linchpin :)
Seth is totally on point about how our education system is designed around mediocrity. He does a good job of clearly outlining how to escape the bad training we all received in school and learn how to embrace individuality and unique contributions of talent that will make us lynchpins instead of cogs.
Yes, because many of my friends are overeducated cogs.
No. Its over 6 hours long so taking it piece by piece is better. I think material like this needs to be reinforced over time and not consumed in one sitting.
I learned about this book through Alex Ikonn and Tim Ferriss. Thanks guys!
Listening to this audio book made me realize what was inside of me the whole time and that I was fighting to "fit" in a system that never benefitted me to begin with. Not to say that it didn't have it's perks....it truly did but I like designing my own map. Thank you for helping me recognize "The Linchpin Within Me." 😊
This book is not for lazy folk who just want to float downstream until retirement or unemployment. It will challenge you and make you uncomfortable with the status quo. So if you want to be comfortable, don't read this book.
