Book Review-Poke the Box


Seth Godin is known for INCREDIBLE work and this book is no exception. Let me tell you the 6 tips I learned from this book:

  1. Invent the status quo.  Stop following the path that everyone is following.  This can be difficult to do because you can be following the advice of a coach or mentor.  It’s hard to carve out your path independently but I want you to do try to do something alone for the next 90 days.  
  2. Be the person to follow.  Seth states this requires a change in your posture. You must become a person of influence.  Do you truly BELIEVE that you are someone to follow??
  3. Become educated.  Motivation and inspiration requires increasing your skills. If you want to know how to keep motivating yourself and others, learn everything you can about it.
  4. Become known. I always say, you can be the but if you don’t tell anyone, you will blow up by yourself. In this world of internet and social media, it is easy to get known, just have something to say.
  5. Be consistent.  If you want to really move the needle on any project that you attempt, get consistent in working on it.  You will make some traction if you keep doing the right thing over and over.
  6. Have the heart and passion to go after your goals. If you want to obtain your goals, know that you must ACT on your passion.

Take some time and enjoy reading: POKE THE BOX.
