A few weeks ago, I came across the perfect book to inspire new behavior. It’s called Linchpin by Seth Godin. Godin is a motivational guru and book writer who writes about living up to one’s potential at a job. But Linchpin is about more than succeeding in business, it’s actually about succeeding as an artist.
For Godin, the word “artist” is synonymous with the word “linchpin.” He believes that in our highly competitive, fast-changing world you have to be a creative, problem-solving spirit who takes initiative and believes in your project. That’s how you stand out and become successful.
