Career Insights Dear Son

Who Cares More, Works Harder, Thinks Deeper, Or Reaches Higher?

Dear son, remember that friend I told you about that has something no one else on the team possesses (and everyone thinks they are unique, by the way)?

All teams consist of people with different, definable work experience attributes:

  • Longevity
  • Diversity
  • Expertise
  • Goals

What most teams lack to some degree is a person who would do the job even if they weren’t paid. Someone who cares more, works harder, thinks deeper or reaches higher.

Hate To Do This To Ya

Totally Mind Blowing, Far Out
Totally Mind Blowing, Far Out

Hey, life is crazy. You barely have time to read one jungle jeff blog post per day and here’s today’s third. Are you kidding me? Nope.

Just watched this animated video (10 minutes) (thank you Seth Godin) and it totally blew my mind. Go-givers are going to thoroughly be inspired by this. I have never seen a You Tube video done quite like this.

Seth Godin’s Top Book Picks

Seth Godin announced his November Top Book picks. Click here.

Most people, like I was three months ago, are clueless who Seth Godin is.

If you are serious about your career, and committed to becoming better at your leadership performance, and especially your leadership thinking, you better should become familiar with Seth Godin.

I first read Purple Cow (about being remarkable) and now Tribes (about, well, stay tuned).

Seth Godin is also on You Tube and you can start to see how refreshingly different, and amazingly brilliant, his thinking is.

But wait. I almost forgot. Most humans (like 90%) are not proactively seeking change.  Leaders say they embrace change, but how often do you see leaders transforming themselves and others?

Are You Serious? (part 2)

Here’s the secret to “Are You Serious”, from yesterday’s post.

Think. Read.  Watch. Listen.  Talk. Write.  Blog.

A lot.

Then repeat.

For example.  I invested about about 30 minutes Sunday to listen to THIS.

That’s how I do it.  And yes, I are serious. 🙂

PS.  If you missed it two sentences up, (click THIS) Seth Godin explains, book by book, his thinking with each book.  If you are serious about becoming better, this will rock your thinking – especially if you are a traditionalist.
