Go. Start. Initiate.
Today I took myself out to lunch at my favorite Thai restaurant. I needed a break from my computer and took my Kindle because I just bought Seth Godin's new book, Poke the Box. While I savored my spicy noodles with chicken, I read about about 20% of the book (hard to know how many pages on a Kindle).
Godin's message is about being an initiator. About starting something. Ideas are a dime a dozen but those who actually start and initiate are few and far between.
When I finished my meal, I received a fortune cookie and laughed out loud…
I bought 5 copies of Poke the Box to share with clients and I've decided to give away three of them now. Here's how you can enter to win a copy…
In the comments below answer this question (adapted from Seth Godin):
Imagine that the world had no middlemen, no publishers, no bosses, no HR folks, no one telling you what you couldn't do.
If you lived in that world, what would you do to get your business in front of more people, get more visibility, so you can touch more lives and make a big difference in the world?
Go. Do that.
By declaring publicly what you will do, you are getting one step closer to making it happen. You may also attract the attention of someone who can help you or offer resources. And I really want to know what you're ready and willing to do to attract more business opportunities.
Go. Don't wait or think you won't win. You never know unless you take the risk and put yourself out there.
