“If you’re going to invest a valuable asset (like time), go ahead and make it productive. Use a post-it or two, or some index cards or a highlighter. Not to write down stuff so you can forget it later, but to create marching orders. It’s simple: if three weeks go by and you haven’t taken action on what you’ve written down, you wasted your time.” – Seth Godin

“It’s not about you, it’s about the next person. The single best use of a business book is to help someone else. Sharing what you read, handing the book to a person who needs it… pushing those around you to get in sync and to take action-that’s the main reason it’s a book, not a video or a seminar. A book is a souvenir and a container and a motivator and an easily leveraged tool. Hoarding books makes them worth less, not more.” – Seth Godin

“Saying no to loud people gives you the resources to say yes to important opportunities.” – Seth Godin

Seth Godin Quotes About Competition

Here are some motivating quotes about competitions from American author and former business executive Seth Godin.

“The problem with competition is that it takes away the requirement to set your own path, to invent your own method, to find a new way.” – Seth Godin

“Most of your competition spend their days looking forward to those rare moments when everything goes right. Imagine how much leverage you have if you spend your time maximizing those common moments when it doesn’t.” – Seth Godin

“The goal, then, isn’t to draw some positioning charts and announce that you have differentiated your product. No, the opportunity is to actually create something that people choose to talk about, regardless of what the competition is doing.” – Seth Godin

“Playing the game is a form of winning the game. In those competitions, we win by being resilient.” – Seth Godin

“The best marketing strategy is to destroy your industry before your competition does.” – Seth Godin

“…treasure what it means to do a day’s work. It’s our one and only chance to do something productive today, and it’s certainly not available to someone merely because he is the high bidder. A day’s work is your chance to do art, to create a gift, to do something that matters. As your work gets better and your art becomes more important, competition for your gifts will increase and you’ll discover that you can be choosier about whom you give them to.” – Seth Godin

“Copy, not from your industry, from others. You have to go where there is no competition.” – Seth Godin

“Competition and the market are like water, they go where they want.” – Seth Godin

Seth Godin Quotes About Dreams

Here are some inspiring quotes about dreams from American author Seth Godin.

“Own your dreams. There is no better way to make them happen.” – Seth Godin

“Who you hang out with determines what you dream about and what you collide with. And the collisions and the dreams lead to your changes. And the changes are what you become. Change the outcome by changing your circle.” – Seth Godin

“Dreams are difficult to build and easy to destroy.” – Seth Godin

“School is at its best when it gives students the expectation that they will not only dream big, but dream dreams that they can work on every day until they accomplish them-not because they were chosen by a black-box process, but because they worked hard enough to reach them.” – Seth Godin

“Dreamers don’t have special genes. They find circumstances that amplify their dreams.” – Seth Godin

“When you set down the path to create art, whatever sort of art it is, understand that the path is neither short nor easy. That means you must determine if the route is worth the effort. If it’s not, dream bigger.” – Seth Godin

“We need students who can learn how to learn, who can discover how to push themselves and are generous enough and honest enough to engage with the outside world to make those dreams happen.” – Seth Godin

“Your peer group are people with similar dreams, goals and worldviews. They are people who will push you in exchange for being pushed, who will raise the bar and tell you the truth. They’re not in your business, but they’re in your shoes. Finding a peer group and working with them, intentionally and on a regular schedule, might be the single biggest boost your career can experience.” – Seth Godin

“Part of leadership (a big part of it actually) is the ability to stick with the dream for a long time.” – Seth Godin

“Fear is the dream killer, the silent voice that pushes us to lose our passion in a vain attempt to seek safety.” – Seth Godin

Seth Godin Quotes About Employees

“If you work in an urgent-only culture, the only solution is to make the right things urgent.” – Seth Godin

Seth Godin Quotes About Criticism

Here are some inspiring quotes about criticism from American author Seth Godin.

“One bad review doesn’t ruin my day because I realize what a badge of honor it is to get a bit of criticism at all.” – Seth Godin

“Criticism comes to those who stand out.” – Seth Godin

“Most people have been brainwashed into believing that their job is to copy edit the world, not to design it.” – Seth Godin

“If you’re remarkable, then it’s likely that some people won’t like you. That’s part of the definition of remarkable. Nobody gets unanimous praise – ever. The best the timid can hope for is to be unnoticed. Criticism comes to those who stand out.” – Seth Godin

“Playing it safe. Following the rules. They seem like the best ways to avoid failure. Alas, that pattern is awfully dangerous. The current marketing “rules” will ultimately lead to failure. In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is failing. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible.” – Seth Godin

“We are too focused on avoiding criticism and not enough on making a difference.” – Seth Godin

“I was amplifying the negative at the expense of the positive, not to serve any useful function, not to make my writing better, but to destroy it. The lizard brain, so attuned to people laughing behind our backs, was on high alert for this sort of criticism and would do anything it could to stop me from writing again. I haven’t sought out and read a review or a tweet since.” – Seth Godin

“Nobody says, ‘Yeah, I’d like to set myself up for some serious criticism!’ And yet, the only way to be remarkable is to do just that.” – Seth Godin

“What people are afraid of isn’t failure. It’s blame. Criticism.” – Seth Godin

Seth Godin Quotes About Goals

Here are some motivational quotes about goals from American author Seth Godin.

“Your audacious life goals are fabulous. We’re proud of you for having them. But it’s possible that those goals are designed to distract you from the thing that’s really frightening you–the shift in daily habits that would mean a re-invention of how you see yourself.” – Seth Godin

“Life is like skiing. Just like skiing, the goal is not to get to the bottom of the hill. It’s to have a bunch of good runs before the sun sets.” – Seth Godin

“Perfect can’t possibly be the goal, we’re left with generous, important and human instead.” – Seth Godin

“I don’t like offending people, and it’s easy to offend people when you don’t know as much as they do. This group knows more about what it takes to lead in this way than I ever will. My goal is to push people, but I need to do it from a place of respect.” – Seth Godin

“My problem with the search for the badge of real is that it trades your goals and your happiness for someone else’s.” – Seth Godin

“Networking that matters is helping people achieve their goals.” – Seth Godin

“The goal of a marketing interaction isn’t to close the sale, any more than the goal of a first date is to get married. No, the opportunity is to move forward, to earn attention and trust and curiosity and conversation.” – Seth Godin

“Set a goal, and in small, consistent steps, work to reach it. Get support from your peers when you start flagging. Repeat. You will change.” – Seth Godin

“Empathy requires something extremely difficult: accepting the fact that we are not and never will be in the other person’s shoes. There’s no rational, universal course because individuals have different goals, different worldviews and different experiences.” – Seth Godin

“The first thing you do when you sit down at the computer: If you’re an artist, a leader or someone seeking to make a difference, the first thing you do should be to lay tracks to accomplish your goals, not to hear how others have reacted/ responded/ insisted to what happened yesterday.” – Seth Godin

“In contemporary art or movies, it makes perfect sense to be focused on the bleeding edge, on the new idea that’s never been previously contemplated. But when we’re discussing our goals, our passion and the way we interact with the culture, it seems to me that what works is significantly more important than what’s new.” – Seth Godin

“The object isn’t to be perfect. The goal isn’t to hold back until you’ve created something beyond reproach. I believe the opposite is true. Our birthright is to fail and to fail often, but to fail in search of something bigger than we can imagine. To do anything else is to waste it all.” – Seth Godin

“The goal is to be on the hook, not to let someone else do the scary parts.” – Seth Godin

“The goal in blogging/ business/ inspiring non-fiction is to share a truth, or at least a truth as the writer sees it. To not just share it, but to spread it and to cause change to happen. You can do that in at least three ways: with research (your own or reporting on others), by building and describing conceptual structures, or with stories that resonate.” – Seth Godin

“If you hesitate to map out your future, to make a big plan or to set a goal, you’ve just gone ahead and mapped your future anyway.” – Seth Godin

“I think if your goal is for everything to be okay, that’s a mistake. To achieve that goal, the only obstacle you’d have to face tomorrow is to eliminate all risk … I’ve made the decision that I’m never trying to make everything okay. I’m trying for there to be more loose ends, not fewer loose ends.” – Seth Godin

“Self sufficiency appears to be a worthy goal, but it’s now impossible if you want to actually get anything done. All our productivity, leverage and insight comes from being part of a community, not apart from it. The goal, I think, is to figure out how to become more dependent, not less.” – Seth Godin

“If you don’t like your definition of ‘good enough’, then feel free to change that, but the goal before shipping is merely that. Not perfect.” – Seth Godin

“Everyone has failed, everyone has misspoken, everyone has meant well but done the wrong thing. Your favorite restaurants, cafes and books have all gotten a one-star review along the way. No brand is perfect, no individual can pretend to be either. Perfect can’t possibly be the goal, we’re left with generous, important and human instead.” – Seth Godin

“The goal has never been to always succeed. The goal is to be allowed to keep initiating.” – Seth Godin

“Persistence isn’t using the same tactics over and over. Persistence is having the same goal over and over.” – Seth Godin

“The thing about goals is that living without them is a lot more fun, in the short run. It seems to me, though, that the people who get things done, who lead, who grow and who make an impact . . . those people have goals.” – Seth Godin

Seth Godin Quotes About Hard Work

Here are some motivating quotes about hard work from American author Seth Godin.

“Before you promise to change the world, it makes sense to do the hard work of changing your neighborhood.” – Seth Godin

“Take the long way. Do the hard work, consistently and with generosity and transparency. And then you won’t waste time doing it over.” – Seth Godin

“I’m not proposing that you let the crowd dictate, or that you work hard to fit in. Far from it. I’m proposing that you know the impact your choices are having and act accordingly.” – Seth Godin

“Becoming a superstar takes about 10,000 hours of hard work.” – Seth Godin

“If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.” – Seth Godin

“One theory says that if you treat people well, you’re more likely to encourage them to do what you want, making all the effort pay off. Do this, get that. Another one, which I prefer, is that you might consider treating people with kindness merely because you can.” – Seth Godin

“How do I dance with fear? Fear is not the enemy. Paralysis is the enemy.” – Seth Godin

“As the amount of inputs go up, as the number of people and ideas that clamor for attention continue to increase, we do what people always do: we rely on the familiar, the trusted and the personal. The incredible surplus of digital data means that human actions, generosity and sacrifice are more important than they ever were before.” – Seth Godin

“The only purpose of starting is to finish” – Seth Godin

“Regardless of what they choose to do in response, this is what you choose to do. Because you can.” – Seth Godin

“Change is not a threat, it’s an opportunity. Survival is not the goal, transformative success is.” – Seth Godin

“The media wants overnight successes (so they have someone to tear down). Ignore them. Ignore the early adopter critics that never have enough to play with. Ignore your investors that want proven tactics and predictable instant results. Listen instead to your real customers, to your vision and make something for the long haul. Because that’s how long it’s going to take, guys.” – Seth Godin

“Emotional labor is available to all of us, but it is rarely exploited as a competitive advantage.” – Seth Godin

“Set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” – Seth Godin

Seth Godin Motivational Quotes

Here are some motivational quotes to remember from American bestselling author Seth Godin.

“The only thing worse than starting something and failing… is not starting something.” – Seth Godin

“All motivation is self-motivation. Your family, your boss, or your co-workers can try to get your engine going, but until you decide what to accomplish, nothing will happen.” – Seth Godin

“The people who are good in the long run fail a lot, especially at the beginning. So, when you fail early, it might be worth realizing that this is part of the deal, the price you pay for being good in the long run. Every rejection is a gift. A chance to learn and to do it better next time. An opportunity to figure out how to bounce, not break. Don’t waste them.” – Seth Godin

“Organizations that destroy the status quo win. Whatever the status quo is, changing it gives you the opportunity to be remarkable.” – Seth Godin

“It’s not an accident that successful people read more books.  ” – Seth Godin

“No one can be responsible for where or how we each begin. No one has the freedom to do anything or everything, and all choices bring consequences. What we choose to do next, though, how to spend our resources or attention or effort, this is what defines us.” – Seth Godin

“The ladder of success isn’t a ladder. It’s a series of steps with leaps interspersed along the way.” – Seth Godin

“The value we create is directly related to how much valuable information we can produce, how much trust we can earn, and how often we innovate.” – Seth Godin

“You don’t win an Olympic gold medal with a few weeks of intensive training. There’s no such thing as an overnight opera sensation. Great law firms or design companies don’t spring up overnight… Every great company, every great brand, and every great career has been built in exactly the same way: bit by bit, step by step, little by little.” – Seth Godin

“The notion that I do my work here, now, like this, even when I do not feel like it, and especially when I do not feel like it, is very important. Because lots and lots of people are creative when they feel like it, but you are only going to become a professional if you do it when you don’t feel like it. And that emotional waiver is why this is your work and not your hobby.” – Seth Godin

“You can risk being wrong or you can be boring.” – Seth Godin

“You don’t make art after you become an artist. You become an artist by ceaselessly making art.” – Seth Godin

“Just because something is easy to measure doesn’t mean it’s important.” – Seth Godin

“What you do for a living is not be creative, what you do for a living is ship.” – Seth Godin

“If you are afraid to write or edit or assemble or disassemble, you are merely a spectator. And you are trapped, trapped by the instructions of those you’ve chosen to follow. Twenty people in the field and eighty thousand in the stands. The spectators are the ones who paid to watch, but it’s the players on the field who are truly alive.” – Seth Godin

“The YouTube video maker gets more out of making a video than you get out of watching it.” – Seth Godin

“Courage doesn’t always involve physical heroism in the face of death. It doesn’t always require giant leaps worthy of celebration. Sometimes, courage is the willingness to speak the truth about what you see and to own what you say.” – Seth Godin

“The rest of the world isn’t nearly as important as the few who are here.” – Seth Godin
