We Are NY Tech
Seth Godin on his own fame:
– “Getting in early and persisting like a crazy person matters.” – Seth Godin
– “I notice things and I tell people about what I notice. I try to be generous about telling. If someone can point out things to you that you already know but describe it in a way that helps you take action on it there becomes a really neat relationship.”

“That person sticks out.”
“That person took risks and that’s why they’re moving up the ladder.”
– “If all you do is what someone tells you to do then you can’t be a Linchpin.”
“There are no longer any great jobs where someone else tells you precisely what to do.” – Godin, Linchpin (262 – Kindle)
