    Story
    (265)

    We send our kids to school and obsess about their test scores, their behavior and theirability to fit in. We post a help wanted ad and look for experience, famous colleges and a history of avoiding failure. We invest in companies based on how they did last quarter, not on what they’re going to do tomorrow. So why are we surprised when it all falls apart? Our economy is not static, but we act as if it is. Your position in the world is defined by what you instigate, how you provoke, and what you learn from the events you cause. In a worldfilled with change, that’s what matters - your ability to create and learn from change.

    Story

    With a dangerous interest in both business and psychology, my antennae are set to angrily reject feel-good fluff (see e.g., The Secret). On occasion, Godin dances close to that line, but his examples are pragmatic and his reasoning is compelling. Short and concentrated, I recommend this one without reservation.
