Short book review: Poke The Box - Seth Godin

Poke the Box - Seth Godin

Seth Godin ranting about taking the initiative and starting something. 

Do rather than plan. 

Start rather than wait. 

Don't focus on being right, focus on starting, try and see. 

Don't focus on doing what you're told, focus on doing what you think is worth doing. 

Some lines I liked: 
  • The challenge is to focus on the work, not on the fear that comes from doing the work. 
  • Those who fear risk also begin to fear movement of any kind. 
  • We have little choice but to move beyond quality and seek remarkable, connected and new. 
  • Please stop waiting for a map. We reward those who draw maps, not those who follow them. 

Enjoyable read if a little repetitive.
