Yesterday I received a package in the mail from my friends at Amazon! I have been waiting for this box for a week and it finally arrived. Like a child on Christmas morning, I tore open the packaging and found inside my books! Literally, I was jumping up and down. (My family looked at me with confusion and disbelief).
This week I also received my magazine subscriptions. Now, my bedside table is stacked with material and I couldn’t decide what I was going to read first. Which will have the biggest impact? Which will I enjoy most? Which will I be able to get through fastest?
I started with Linchpin by Seth Godin. 5 pages in, before I could no longer keep my eyes open, I can already say that this is a MUST READ for everyone. It should be required reading by college students, employed, unemployed, everyone!
What Godin is explaining is how our world is different today and what this means about how we view and perform the world we work in. It is empowering. It so nicely captures the big picture view of reality as we know it today.
Each of us needs to understand how we can contribute and make a difference. The rules are changing, so must we.
The other material I am looking forward to getting to:
Agents by Chris Brogan
