Seth Godin never fails to either enlighten me or confirm my own beliefs.

His blog posting today could very well just be my 2012 New Year’s resolution – although there’s no reason why I couldn’t/shouldn’t get a head start on it now.

Here it is, in case you’re averse to following links (although clicking on any link on my blog will open another window or tab to display the link for you…you’re welcome!):

Insulate yourself…

from anonymous angry people

Expose yourself to art you don’t yet understand

Precisely measure the results that are important to you

Stay blind to the metrics that don’t matter

Fail often


Lead, don’t manage so much

Seek out uncomfortable situations

Make an impact on the people who matter to you

Be better at your baseline skills than anyone else

Copyedit less, invent more

Give more speeches

Ignore unsolicited advice

Many people deserve to be quoted.  Some, such as Seth Godin, deserve to have their messages stapeled to your shirt sleeve.

So sayeth the StickMonkey.
