Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? by Seth Godin
2010 is really a grounbreaking year for good good good good books that inspire, motivate, sparkle and keep you up at night. If you liked the beats of Godin’s book ‘Tribes’ and you are ready for more, this is it. In your face.
Godin takes you on an search through the hidden sides of … yourself and what you are capable of if only you were not so scared. Godin is an outsider to the psychoblabla literature so he doesn’t get caught into therapy language. Rather, he talks about putting passion in your work, not giving in to your fears but going through, the resistance (Organizational Change Practitioners MUST READ this part TWICE), art, the artist in yourself and the economy of gifts.
As always, Godin’s writing style is light and very enjoyable to read, with lots of examples and common sense that makes you stop and say to yourself: “damn, he’s right”.
I love this book because it makes my heart beat faster, even now when I am reading it a second time.
