“Labor Day – I’m working today.” Or, not?

“In fact, if I’m conscious, I’m working. That’s largely because it doesn’t seem like ‘work’ today. I’d write this blog even if no one read it,” says Seth Godin, author of Whatcha Gonna Do With That Duck? , other books and his Seth’s Blog.

 “We’re surrounded by people who are busy getting their ducks in a row, waiting for just the right moment. Getting your ducks in a row is a fine thing to do. But deciding what you are going to do with that duck is a far more important issue.”

Godin gives 17 “best times to start making it happen” responses [excuses?] we all give, but, “actually, as you’ve probably guessed, the best time to start was last year. The second best time to start is right now.”

Godin started blogging in the early 1990s and Whatcha Gonna Do with That Duck is a collection of “six years of his best, most entertaining, and most poignant blog posts, plus a few bonus ebooks.” It also offers solid approaches, counterintuitive insights, and advice that help you focus your ducks for success. “Godin writes to get under our skin. He wants us to stand up and do something remarkable, outside the standards of the industrial system that raised us.”
