Don’t Manage Like a Stooge, Look Before You Leap

The Path To Amazing Runs Through Not-Yet-Amazing

“If you set your bar at “amazing,” it’s awfully difficult to start…” today writes Seth Godin. He continues… Confronted with the gap between your vision of perfect and the reality of what you’ve created, the easiest path is no path. Shrug. Admit defeat. Hit delete.

Seth Godin Says: How To Run A Problem-Solving Meeting

Here’s a complete rip-off of today’s post from Seth Godin. Great to have Seth playing in my sandbox. This is a special sort of get together, similar to the meeting where you organize people to figure out the best way to take advantage of an opportunity.

Seth Godin’s Five Step Plan For Everyone And Everything

Seth Godin posted these five steps on his blog today. As always with Seth, you can’t get any cleaner or to the point than the way he puts it. Go, make something happen. Do work you’re proud of. Treat people with respect. Make big promises and keep them. Ship it out the door. When in doubt, see #1.

Describe Solutions Rather Than Ask For Tasks

Below is a word-for-word cut-and-paste from today’s Seth Godin’s blog post: “What do you need me to do?” “What do you need me to do?” This is a question that defines the person asking it. It is very different from, “here’s what you might need…” If you ask people for the next task on the list, if you allow them …

Friendly Falafel

For lunch today, I popped into Maoz Vegetarian restaurant for falafel. It’s really good. (Seth Godin raves about the place – calls it the best falafel in the world!) They serve fresh hot falafel, on warm pita bread, with delicious hummus, and let you slather on your own toppings. Always delicious. An aside… In Europe everyone takes cash, fewer vendors …
