“"People would rather complain about being in a box than acknowledge the fact that the box is open and they can get out of it."”
Like many of us, I've been a fan of Seth Godin's for years. I love his daily thoughts and have most of his books. Nearly two years ago he wrote a post that explained while the internet was indeed a magical tool, it didn't have edges. And while this edge-less-ness had its benefits, it also made it hard to give an idea a proper beginning, middle, and end. What he was saying was, "Yes, the internet is awesome, but books will never go away!" It was those words that gave me courage to write my first book.
After I had finished writing it, I sent it to Seth to see if he might read it and even endorse it. I didn't expect a response.
Then maybe two hours later *DING* there was a reply from Seth! It was warm, kind, and generous. He gave me some incredibly constructive feedback and made my book immeasurably better.
Early this morning, I had the extreme privilege of chatting with Seth about a smattering of things including his wonderful new book, The Icarus Deception, the end of the industrial age, and iPhone magic tricks, just to name of few.
We spoke for nearly an hour, so I decided to break up the interview into a few daily segments.
