Poke The Box

Have just read Seth Godin’s ‘Poke the Box‘ book.

Written in short readable sections Seth’s points are well made and provoking.

My takeaways:

It is easy to plan and say but the rewards are in ‘shipping’ and doing.

Don’t be defeated by failure – learn and have another go – gain wisdom.

Don’t be afraid –

Be your own best friend – practice self compassion and self care.

Initiative!

Experience – real – not virtual – experience life – create action – do stuff.

As a teacher I need to encourage the children / community to start stuff. Right now they are keen on fundraising for the needy and also a new basketball goal!

Find the book and many more from Seth in your library, book store or online.
