I just read an interesting post by Josh Bernoff on his Groundswell blog (co-hosted with Charlene Li).
He talks about Seth Godin’s ‘idea factory’ approach to blogging, book writing and I suspoect, to life in general. He also mentions that some readers criticise Seth’s ideas as being unimplementable.
Seth has absolutely tons of great ideas, some of them almost obvious (but not quite), some of them way out on the boundary. He always challenges the reader to think for themself.
It is the thinking for yourself that seems to be the problem for so many of his critics, rather than the ideas themselves. They want everything pre-packeged into bite-sized chunks that are easy to digest, ideas included.
Maybe in our high-pressure world, we are so desperate to be doing stuff that we forget to think about what stuff we should be doing first.
What do you think? Is Seth fit to burst with great ideas? Or are his critics just lacking in imagination?
Post a comment and get the conversation going.
