Without Seth Godin, This Blog Wouldn't Exist.

Okay, I exaggerate a little. I discovered Seth in my 2nd year in advertising while working on some Customer Relationship Management (CRM) stuff. This blog was started way back in 2008 or something. But yes, the daily influx you see on this blog, that's all Seth.

Every day, despite all that he does, he finds time to write one meaningful blog post. Some of them are long and meandering. Some of them are brutally pithy. But all of them consistently educational. Even when he shills stuff to his readers, you have to admire how he does it. It doesn't feel like a sales pitch, it still feels like conversation. And I'm talking about a guy who his readers just know from his blog.

I am gonna share what he wrote today. It's useful for everyone. And it's right in line with all the talks I give you guys about developing a ritual. 

To overcome an irrational fear replace it with a habit.
If you're afraid to write, write a little, every day. Start with an anonymous blog, start with a sentence. Every day, drip, drip, drip, a habit.
If you're afraid to speak up, speak up a little, every day. Not to the board of directors, but to someone. A little bit, every day.
Habits are more powerful than fears.
