SPOS #883 - Seth Godin On Strumming The Song Of Significance
Welcome to episode #883 of Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast. Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast - Episode #883. I could not tell you how many times Seth Godin has been a guest on this show. I don't say this to brag. I state this, because he has (truly) influenced everything from my thinking about work and the future, to how I've built worked on my own professional development and career (more on that here: Dear Seth Godin). As soon as I caught wind that he was publishing a new book, The Song Of Significance, I locked in a time for us to not only discuss this incredible book/manifesto about what it means to be human, to be a part of a team, and to make work that really matters, but to also drill down into how the world is changing (artificial intelligence, politics, work from home, being an entrepreneur and more). For those who don't know, Seth is an oracle. He has been sparking minds and inspiring people to level up for over three decades. His daily blog, a beacon of wisdom and insight, has been my constant in the ever-changing digital landscape for more than ten years (when he first started publishing). Seth is an artist with words. He's the author of 20 bestselling books, translated into nearly 40 languages. Also worth noting is his Carbon Almanac project. And Seth's journey isn't a straight path. It's filled with intriguing detours and exciting projects. In 2015, Seth brought to life the altMBA, a transformative 30-day workshop that's changed countless lives. It's part of Akimbo, an independently owned B corp, crafting innovative ways to learn. Seth's online courses, including The Marketing Seminar and several on Udemy, have been taken by over 60,000 people. He's a member of the Guerrilla Marketing Hall of Fame, the Direct Marketing Hall of Fame, and most recently, the Marketing Hall of Fame. Seth's free ebooks on the placebo effect and education are worth a read, and his five TED Talks are a must-watch. So, with that... let's get into his new book and the changing world of work, building a business worth working for and the future. Enjoy the conversation... Running time: 58:22.
