If you read my blog often, you know I’m a big Seth Godin fan. His recent blog, The Dolittle Effect was a really good one.
In it, he talks about how the movie tanked, yet it had 4 key ingredients for what should have been an incredible success, yet it wasn’t. The final line of the blog says “sometimes, the investments we put in place to avoid mediocrity are the very things that cause it.”
In my words, success can be a learning disability.
When we mail it in, get casual with our practices, procrastinate on doing what we know it takes to succeed, rely on what “got us here,” not what will get us there, we fail. Almost every time.
Success belongs to the masterful, the relentless learners, those who will never settle. They aspire to incrementally and enthusiastically get better. All. The. Time.
Once you’ve read this @sethgodin blog, turn to Netflix and watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Then, you’ll understand.
