Becoming Seth Godin

I have a role model for my blogging efforts: Seth Godin. I have more hair than Seth does - possibly a plus - but he is much more prolific. Every day - 7 days a week, including national holidays - Seth sends out a wise and thought-provoking message to his many followers. His core themes repeat over time, but he gives a fresh twist to each topic. I am in awe of his blogger output - both quality and quantity.

Role models are good to have. They inspire us to stretch professionally and personally. They guide us along a career path. They show us how to handle challenge and change. But they are not us, and we are not them. To find lasting fulfillment, we must be in touch with what makes us special. We must find what works for us.

I will not shave my head, and I will not commit to posting blogs on Memorial Day or even Groundhog Day. I will try to find my own voice and my own rhythm. I hope to reach a few readers with helpful ideas. I will work on becoming a better me. I believe Seth would approve.
