I have an extra copy of Seth Godin’s new book, Linchpin, which is yours free for the asking. I would prefer to give it someone in San Antonio where I live, but if you write me a really great and compelling reason why you’d like the book, I will mail it to you.
There are no strings attached, except for the following request:
You have to agree to read the book. And you have agree to take one actionable item with it.
You don’t have to solve world peace.
You don’t have to get all the banks back in order.
And you don’t have to solve global chilling.
You can read several reviews on the Linchpin Squidoo here.
The basic premise of the book is that there now resides a new “linchpin” – hence the name, in the world of work and organizations. Seth says that we have gone from a two teams (management and labor) to a third team, the linchpins – those who use their own means of production, to make a difference, to lead and connect us.
All I ask is that if give you the book, you’ll agree to take one actionable item in your work, or your life.
I decided to reduce certain aspects of clutter and noise in my life and clear my mind even more so I can do better and more effective work for me- and my clients.
I’m less stressed out and in learning to say “no” more often to projects or business opportunities that are not just right for me. Doing so let’s me be a better PR / Social Media advisor, strategist and doer.
I am also now a Guest Lecturer at The University of Texas at San Antonio and while I am “teaching,” I’m really learning from my students. That’s part of the art in which I was inspired by Seth’s book. I’m learning that I can help others learn and in the process make learning a two-way dialogue and not just teacher lecturing to a group of MBA students.
So, send me an email to: alan at weinkrantz dot com, or just leave a comment.
Tell me what you would do and hopefully with a few requests I’ll pick one that just feels right and be in touch.
Thanks for reading this post.
