Failing to Start: You don’t need a Map – You need a Compass

Hola Todos!

I’ve got another excellent nugget for you – again from listening to podcasts via my Stitcher App.

I was listening to Michael Stelzner, founder/CEO of The Social Media Examiner and he was interviewing Seth Godin.  In their conversation on failing to start, why people accept mediocrity and how to change that, Seth something very nuggetworthy pertaining mentoring:


Anyone who has drawn you a map has done you no favors because maps are not anything if you’re an artist.  All you need is a compass.  I’m not telling you I’ve got it all figured out.  I’m helping you with some of the tools for you to figure it out.”


Something to think about today…

Best regards,
