Seth Godin: If not now, when?

I’ve shared Mr. Godin’s writings before, and thought today, as a U.S. citizen, it a timely, relevant, quick read.

Care a little more.

Show up.

Embrace possibility.

Tell the truth.

Dive deeper.

Seek the truth behind the story.

Ask the difficult question.

Lend a hand.

Dance with fear.

Play the long game.

Say ‘no’ to hate.

Look for opportunities, especially when it seems like there aren’t any left.

Risk a bigger dream.

Take care of the little guy.

Offer a personal insight.

Build something magical.

Keep your promises.

Do work that matters.

Expect more.

Sign your work.

Be generous for no reason.

Give the benefit of the doubt.

Develop empathy.

Make your mom proud.

Take responsibility.

Give credit.

Play by a better set of rules.

Choose your customers.

Choose your reputation.

Choose your future.

Thank the ref.

Reward patience.

Leap.

Breathe.

Because we can.

It really is up to us. Which is great, because we’re capable of changing everything if we choose.

All we can do is all we can do, but maybe, all we can do is enough.

Engaging Connection

With a U.S. recognized holiday approaching, families (by creation or design) will gather to share their time, hearty food creations and perhaps a thanks or two for all that is good and kind in their lives. Others will be spending the holiday in other ways, significant to them, and perhaps also with dedicated recognition of blessings and good fortune.

Whether solo or many, here is an engaging way for all of us to be connected through a shared word/story experience. Here, via Seth Godin, a free resource and idea for your U.S. Thanksgiving or a time of dedicated thanks-giving wherever you are in the world.
