A little drop for your “hmmm, yes, you might be right…hadn’t thought about it that way” bucket from Seth Godin (marketer and generally smart guy):
On the day everyone is pleased…
On that day, the day that everyone notices your work, approves and lets you know, then what will happen?
We spend an incredible amount of time and psychic energy planning and working for that day, but why? It will never arrive, and even if it does, it’s not clear that anything special happens.
Perhaps the approval of every person in the entire world doesn’t need to be the goal of your work.
