How To Embrace Life & Conquer Work – Our Favourite Seth Godin Quotes

Seth Godin - quotes

Ahh Seth Godin! Marketer, influencer and word magician. He is a crowd favourite in our office and we have recently got our hands on his newest limited edition 800 page book, “What does it sound like when you change your mind”? It has become like a bible at Data Nerds. Every morning at our standup meeting we choose one post from the book to read aloud. If you don’t know Seth Godin, you should. Check out his blog and read our favourite Godin quotes below:


Seth Godin


“The way to work with a bully is to take the ball and go home. First time, every time. When there’s no ball, there’s no game. Bullies hate that. So they’ll either behave so they can play with you or they’ll go bully someone else.”


“Dig your well before you’re thirsty.”


“In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is a failure. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible.”


“Being aware of your fear is smart. Overcoming it is the mark of a successful person.”


“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.”


“What tribes are, is a very simple concept that goes back 50 million years. It’s about leading and connecting people and ideas. And it’s something that people have wanted forever.”


“Being a leader gives you charisma. If you look and study the leaders who have succeeded, that’s where charisma comes from, from the leading.”


“I intentionally abandoned the hard stuff early on because not only do I think it’s useless, I think it’s a distraction.”


“If a product’s future is unlikely to be remarkable – if you can’t imagine a future in which people are once again fascinated by your product – it’s time to realize that the game has changed. Instead of investing in a dying product, take profits and reinvest them in building something new.”


“We’re not going to outgrow our need for information.”


“If we live in a world where information drives what we do, the information we get becomes the most important thing. The person who chooses that information has power.”


“Try is the opposite of hiding.”



“Instead of wondering where your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t have to escape from.”
