  From This is a Book What is the most important thing? Probably will surprise you! To achieve success and happiness, we often have to do a lot of what we don’t want to (the drudge work, the minial jobs, the ass-kissing ladder climbing) in order to reach the end result. Work.

Seth Godin came to Dallas. He is in the top 1% of internet influencers, marketers, book authors, motivators, aficionados, etc…just such a brilliant mind. It was so awesome hearing him live, as I’ve read a handful of his 15 books. The timing couldn’t be more wonderful, since I am engrossed in my music and dealing daily with the human uncertainty, doubt, and fears that naturally go along with making and sharing art.
