Being caught up by so much operational work recently at work stopped me from pursuing inspirations. It is so easy to become stagnant. When life is without motion and passion, it becomes boring. So I want to do something about it.
Just got to know that Seth Godin is coming down under September 2014 (yup it’s next year, but tickets are already available for sale!!!).God knows how much respect I have for SETH, would love a once a life time opportunity to sit in a full day Q&A session listening to his words of wisdom and letting him ignite all the fire inside me towards marketing, towards brilliant ideas. But I thought to myself, how much would I gain from that one day session? A lot more than what he would normally share? More than the aggregation of all his learnings accumulated day by day? How much information I can take away? If I were lucky, I might merely get to ask 2 questions or 3, and I would be really busy taking notes at the same time, so I can imagine it is going to be a full on and overwhelming learning experience shared with 180 ‘Seth believers’. But is there any other way I can make the learning experience more personal, more impactful to myself and also Seth Godin could gain value from it?
I have an idea. An idea that could help discipline myself and also strengthen my ability to execute and implement ideas – it is to put Seth Godin’s daily mantra into practise and write down the learning experience that belongs uniquely to me, i.e. for every idea Seth writes in his blog, I’ll set a challenge for myself to find a situation or opportunity to just execute it. Then I’ll come back and write about my learning at the end of every day.
This is going to be such an exciting learning experience for me. In terms of how to get in touch with Seth, that’s another story. I’ll think about that if I could sustain this activity for 2 months.
It really is going to take persistence and discipline to do this, and I am going to do it.
