Like I did a month or so ago, I am in the middle of a Seth Godin kick, so to speak. I read three of Pressfield’s books back to back, and I loved every one. I am a big fan of Godin’s blog posts, and I loved his audio course Leap First: Creating Work That Matters (see below). I have decided to read some of his most popular books over the next few weeks. I will include links to them in this post and in The 10 posts over the next few weeks if you want to get them and learn from them along with me!
Here are the articles and Godin’s books for this week!
Book I read this week: Leap First: Creating Work That Matters by Seth Godin. This audio course is amazing! It is only 2 hours long, but it is filled with months of insightful wisdom. I know I will listen to this one for many years. Given its length and value for anyone who communicates a message to the public, you have no excuse not to get it and listen!
Book I’m reading next week: The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick) by Seth Godin. I read this book years ago, and it gave me insight on getting through really tough times when tackling huge goals. I can’t wait to read it again!
