Seth Godin is at it again….issuing challenges and pushing us to move out of our comfort zones. Well, I’m going to take him up on his latest challenge.
Here’s Seth’s original post:
Winnie Kao, who has been leading special projects over the last few months in my office, has something to share. You can check it out here.
She’s running a mutual support sprint to help people get on track (or back on track) with their habit of shipping. Here’s how it works: Participants commit to posting 1 blog post every day for 7 days. The goal is to practice shipping with a like-minded community and to push yourself to simply start.
Check out her site and the video where Winnie explains the inspiration for the event and details on how to submit your posts. There’ll be a Tumblr page featuring everyone’s posts, a daily chat room at noon to connect, tweets with #YourTurnChallenge, and an audiostream broadcast at the end to celebrate.
This is a chance to practice shipping for one week within a community. It might be hard but it’s doable and it might change you. I hope you’ll give it a shot.
PS it works even if you haven’t read my new book yet.
PPS of course, Winnie didn’t fail at all. She’s succeeding, because connecting, leading and doing the work are precisely what we all need to do.
