The CliffNotes of the Week:

  1. A Tiny Ripple Can Make a Big Splash (Finding Significance and Making a Difference)
  2. Dodge Deceptive Doppelgangers (Circumnavigating False Proxies)
  3. Sharing the Notebook Love (Page 19 Thinking)

Time to unravel these nuggets!

🚀 A Tiny Ripple Can Make a Big Splash

Seth Godin was spitting some mad truths about how our little actions can lead to world-changing impacts. It’s all about perspective – feeling like a superhero doesn’t always mean flying or stopping bullets, sometimes it’s about making changes that matter to you, even if they are teeny-tiny.

Put simply, it’s about connecting with people, making their day just a little brighter, and creating a culture of positivity. You don’t need to be Oprah and give everyone a car; sometimes, even making someone’s day 10% better is a victory lap worthy.

🔄 Dodge Deceptive Doppelgangers

Who hasn’t picked a restaurant based on reviews? We all use proxies or substitutes to make decisions. But Seth Godin is here to ring the alarm that sometimes, these proxies can lead us down the wrong path, like treating people unfairly.

Here’s an idea: Let’s prioritize human qualities – strength, bravery, honesty, clarity, friendliness, loyalty – over proxies that might not accurately reflect a person’s true character. Imagine that!

📝 Sharing the Notebook Love

Mr. Godin brings us another intriguing concept called “Page 19 Thinking.” It’s like a group hug, but for a piece of work. This process is about getting the team to work together, cultivate a non-blame culture, and turn an OK piece of work into a masterpiece.

The key takeaway? Don’t let fear of failure or obsession with perfection be the giant boulder blocking your road to improvement. Come together, right now, over an idea.
