Read in December, 2010

There’s a massive shift of consciousness going on, as the old paradigm dies and the new one takes its place. In the new order, “artists” win the day because what they do cannot be outsourced or automated. Seth Godin calls these people “linchpins” because they “invent, lead, connect others, make things happen…figure out what to do when there’s no rule book.” Godin shows you why this is and inspires you to be one yourself. He’s been criticized a bit for not showing you how to be one, but that’s kind of the point: there is no real map, no “one path” that everyone can follow. You have to figure it out for yourself by developing the state of mind and playing to your own personality. Some good insights on “the resistance”, the culture of gifts and connection, and “the seven abilities of the linchpin.”
