This quote, from the Marketing expert Kevin Nations, encapsulates why so many people hold themselves back from achieving their ambitions. Does it resonate with you? It certainly does with me! We can focus so much time and effort on trying to make the ‘right’ decisions that we can fall into the trap of failing to take any actions at all. I tend to think that, if there is a cliché, there is probably some truth behind it. “There’s never a perfect time to have a baby”, this is another phrase commonly used that hits on the same issue. If we are ever going to move towards our goals, we need to grasp the nettle. In almost all cases, any decision is the right decision, and what we encounter after making that decision will give clarity on the next steps that need to be taken.

The paradox, of course, is that you have to walk throu […]Seth Godin
- What does branded look like? November 30, 2015The vast majority of products that are sold are treated as generic by just about everyone except the naive producer, who believes he has a brand of value. A branded object or service has two components, one required, one desired: 1. Someone who isn't even using it can tell, from a distance, who made it. It appears that it could only be made by that prod […]Seth Godin
