Seth Godin (Twitter @ThisIsSethsBlog Blog – sethgodin.typepad.com ) is a business and marketing guru. I read his blog daily. It is always interesting, usually thought provoking, and often is a concept that I can apply as a teacher and coach. His post earlier this week, Get Rich (Quick) exemplifies this. I was going to add my commentary about how applicable these things are to teaching and coaching, but it really is unnecessary … it is perfect in its simplicity:
Enrich your world by creating value for others.
Enrich your health by walking twenty minutes a day.
Enrich your community by contributing to someone, without keeping score.
Enrich your relationships by saying what needs to be said.
Enrich your standing by trusting someone else.
Enrich your organization by doing more than you’re asked.
Enrich your skills by learning something new, something scary.
Enrich your productivity by rejecting false shortcuts.
Enrich your peace of mind by being trusted.
The connection economy pays dividends in ways that the industrial one rarely did.
Now…. go get richer … and remember…
You Can Do More… your brain is lying to you…. Don’t Believe It!
