Two Lifechanging Words From Seth Godin

May 25, 2015

Years ago, I heard an interview with Seth Godin where he was talking about how to approach projects. He said two words that completely changed my life…

1. Simple

2. Scary

The idea he presented was this:

Keep your projects simple enough that you can get them off the ground quickly, but scary enough that you know you are doing brave work, work that matters.

I love this approach, especially since we don’t know if an idea (a brave idea) will work!

Simple allows us to keep moving forward because we haven’t invested years or millions, and scary keeps us humble and human.
