For many years I toiled in the confines of a large corporation, struggling to maintain motivation in a role that just didn't give me a sense of purpose. Seth's work helped sustain me, and inspire me during this time. Trying to find a sense of purpose, I helped form a Tribe (even before Seth gave it a name) within the organization with the goal to improve employee engagement; this is now the focus of passion and my new business (Psyche).

While I always appreciate Seth for many things, like his approach to giving his gifts for free, his style, or his ability to impart great wisdom in a short blog post (every day!!), lately his gift to me has been motivation. Starting a business is fraught with financial and emotional peril, but when my motivation drops all I have to do is listen to 5-10 minutes of Linchpin on my iPhone, or read Seth's daily blog post, to get energized all over again.

Thank you Seth for sharing your gifts, and I look forward to another 50 years!!

Happy Birthday!

 

Linchpin is Purple Cow for people. Someone worth talking about, someone worth crossing the street to say hello to, someone who refuses to be an interchangeable cog in a vast machine. This isn't easy to do, which is precisely why it's worth so much.
