Linchpin light

I finished reading Seth Godin’s new book Linchpin this weekend, and woke up thinking about it this morning.

There are quite a few diagrams in the book, so maybe that is why I came up with this as a way to describe what it’s about:

I want to write more about the book, but I want to do some rereading first, some giving it time to settle. I twittered a few quotes as I was reading that I’ll share again:

“Art changes posture and posture changes innocent bystanders.”

“lizard brain is the reason you’re afraid, the reason you don’t do all the art you can, the reason you don’t ship when you can”

“art is the act of navigating without a map”

It’s worth spending time reading this book, and worth even more putting the ideas in it into daily practice. As Seth reminds us, “real artists ship”.
