Anyone who knows Seth Godin should already have read Linchpin. I am somehow late to the party! Seth gives amazing insights about your career and how to be indispensable in this age where workers are minimal-ized by processes and systems. Seth uses the term “emotional labor”, which is the key to being indispensable. His advice also leads us to be the artist and creative beings that we all are!
GEM #6 – Linchpin
My top 3 book quotes:
1. “Work is nothing but a platform for art and the emotional labor that goes with it”
2. “Passion isn’t project specific, it’s people specific”
3. “Transferring your passion to your job is far easier than finding a job that happens to match your passion”
Linchpin is a must read for anyone who wants to be free of the “work” and perform art on a daily basis in any career. It will motivate you to face your fears and dare to be successful! Will you commit to being indispensable today?
