I subscribe to Seth’s blog since I love reading and digesting most of what he writes about not buying into the system and moving in the direction of being free to practice your art.
Our culture needed compliant workers, people who would contribute without complaint, and we set out to create as many of them as we could.
And so generations of students turned into generations of cogs, factory workers in search of a sinecure. We were brainwashed into fitting in, and then discovered that the economy wanted people who stood out instead.
When exactly were we brainwashed into believing that the best way to earn a living is to have a job?
I think each one of us needs to start with that.

The good news is that more than ever, value accrues to those that show up, those that make a difference, those that do work that matters. Linchpin Manifesto
Real change rarely comes from the front of the line. It happens from the middle or even the back. Real change happens when someone who cares steps up and takes what feels like a risk. People follow because they want to, not because you can order them to.
Busy does not equal important. Measured doesn’t mean mattered.
Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, you ought to set up a life you don’t need to escape from.
You don’t have to settle. It’s a choice you get to make every day.
Good enough’ stopped being good enough a long time ago. so why not be great?
