Seth Godin never fails to stimulate – even if you disagree. I don’t know about you but I am getting heartily fed up of negative media, scared politicians and whining individuals (“its all doom!” “We’re all going to die!”) Well at least the latter is true. Crazy times in history have always been times that offered great opportunities. Aren’t portfolio careers scary and risky? Of course they are. But then so is staying doing what you are doing now.

This is what Seth has to say:

“Stop thinking about how crazy the times are, and start thinking about what the crazy times demand. There has never been a worse time for business as usual. Business as usual is sure to fail, sure to disappoint, sure to numb our dreams. That’s why there has never been a better time for the new. Your competitors are too afraid to spend money on new productivity tools. Your bankers have no idea where they can safely invest. Your potential employees are desperately looking for something exciting, something they feel passionate about, something they can genuinely engage in and engage with.

You get to make a choice. You can remake that choice every day, in fact. It’s never too late to choose optimism, to choose action, to choose excellence. The best thing is that it only takes a moment — just one second — to decide.”

Have a creative  new year and look for the opportunities.
