Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Linchpin, Tribes, and The Dip comes an elegant little book that will inspire artists, writers, and entrepreneurs to stretch and commit to putting their best work out into the world.

Creative work doesn't come with a guarantee. But there is a pattern to who succeeds and who doesn't. And engaging in the consistent practice of its pursuit is the best way forward. 

Based on the breakthrough Akimbo workshop pioneered by legendary author Seth Godin, The Practice will help you get unstuck and find the courage to make and share creative work. Godin insists that writer's block is a myth, that consistency is far more important than authenticity, and that experiencing the imposter syndrome is a sign that you're a well-adjusted human. Most of all, he shows you what it takes to turn your passion from a private distraction to a productive contribution, the one you've been seeking to share all along.

With this book as your guide, you'll learn to dance with your fear. To take the risks worth taking. And to embrace the empathy required to make work that contributes with authenticity and joy.

A book to be read over and over again.

What an inspirational listen. Seth’s Godin’s writing and clarity of inspiration is ONE OF A KIND. Since having listened to this, I have shipped 10 days of blog posts in a row. THANK YOU, Seth, sincerely, for putting this into the world.

Godin does it again

Seth Godin’s books always have so much wisdom and knowledge that he shares in a way that is profound and challenging. In The Practice Godin inspires people to create while giving viable tools to help off set challenges that creators might face. This book is very well written and is very motivating.

Enlightening...as always

Seth can seldom go wrong in inspiring you to do the art you always wanted. He gives you permission without making you follow a formula, and opens your eyes to the reality that you will only be an artist when you dedicate to the practice and ship your work.

The Practice is Perfect

As usual Seth delivers and amazing book based off the results of his amazing Akimbo workshops. Stick to the practice; don't focus on the outcome. Don't sacrifice Art for a specific Outcome. Keep moving.

Another great Seth Godin book but Linchpin my fav

If you are a fan of Seth Godin then you will be a fan of this book. I found it very informative with a lot of take aways. Seth is always refreshing to hear. There is one thing that really bugged me about the audiobook though and that's that the chapters are different from what he is saying through out the book. For example the "Theres no such thing as writers block" chapter probably has 30 chapters in it. You know this because Seth will say "83" and then speak. So while the audiobook reflects only 11 chapters. Seth talks like there is over 100.. unless he is just counting, in which case I really dont get it then. Other then that annoying part it's a great book. Seth is a great person to listen too

I struggle with this format

I forgot Tribes was like this too. I feel like I'm being read a list of headlines from Oprah episodes. The thing that kills me is that I find Seth so inspirational in interviews and discussing in depth the topics that he speaks about. And while I love the idea of sound bite dissemination of ideas, this format loses me almost immediately. My mind wanders and it's not wandering more deeply into the subject but wandering from boredom to other things. I hate that I didn't love this book but for me the author is better in almost every other format other than his own writing.
