Journal 5/17/22 — Two Reminders From Seth Godin
Been listening to Seth Godin all morning on different interviews today.
2 reminders that came up
- You don’t need to go learn from 500 people. But you MUST start by studying that ONE person who does what you want to do. You must study the way they do things, live life, think, analyze, and how they execute their tasks. That’s more valuable than surface-level learning from 500 different people.
- Marketing is a game of providing value, showing up, and getting feedback for the work that you are putting out. With social media, everyone is worried about getting the most attention, but attention doesn’t matter if it’s not from the people who care about what you do, what you say, or who you are.
Really, at the end of the day, we human beings are here to create change for a better tomorrow, for a better world for the next generation. So let’s focus on making positive changes. Stop focusing on the surface-level BS that we are so conditioned to see every day, and start putting out valuable work that people care about and make the world better.
