Since discovering Seth's work, my world has changed because I've realized that even if all my hair does fall out, I can use my baldness as a positioning statement. Follicle folly aside, since I joined Seth's Triiibes network, I've been immersed in a world of smart, creative and ever-so-humane thinkers, people who care about the course the world's taking, and who try to right its foibles in exciting and innovative ways.

But aside from the extravagant gifts these Triiibsters offer their communities and the world at large, I've received from many of them personal gifts of kindness, appreciation and sincere camaraderie. I feel I will know, to my great benefit, many of these people for the rest of my life.

To Seth personally, your words in Linchpin to "Do your best work," "Don't settle," and "Make a difference," have had a deep effect on me: I'm still struggling to live up to their gritty challenge, but I struggle with renewed purpose. I truly feel my best ideas are yet to come.

Happy Birthday Seth! (Watch out for that hidden bacon in the cake.)

 

Once you've managed to create something truly remarkable, the challenge is to do two things simultaneously. * Milk the Cow for everything its worth. Figure out how to extend it and profit from it for as long as possible. * Create an environment where you are likely to invent a new Purple Cow in time to replace the first one when its benefits inevitably trail off.
