  1. Thanks for posting this! Though I have his iphone App and books, these interviews really get to the crux of the finishing issue. Though I’ve been reading his books for their application to the arts, it’s cool Seth Godin dealt with the arts directly (not just marketing, but the actual delivery/shipping/finishing) in Linchpin. Great interview and conversation!

  3. “If you are serious about your art, you will spend a decade to make it happen”. Seth Godin hit it on the head with this simple, yet enlightening comment. Any activity worthwhile will require effort. The more worthwhile the project or activity, the more effort is required. Passion is what I refer to as the pursuit of what some people call “impossible”. We can certainly control our destiny. Henceforth, my mantra is: Make it Happen!
