The Man, The Myth, The Legend, Seth Godin keeps a DAILY Promise To The Audience that is difficult to comprehend.
Every morning, for as long as I can remember, in my inbox sits thought provoking, inspiring, powerful blog posts sent to hundreds of thousands, even millions of readers.
It is THE First thing I read every day.
The Practice behind Seth’s Signature Moves and Promise to Blog is quintessential in Leadership, Contribution, and Integrity.
It is as consistent as the sun coming up, and always arrives in my inbox to begin every day.
Not just workdays, but weekends, every single day.
Over 5,000,000 words!
It is the ultimate example of Making a Promise and Keeping it, even if he never made that promise to us, he just does it, going from “commitment-to-daily habit”, and he knows that we all expect it, and it’s always there.
As a writer who barely cranks out 1 blog per week to me it’s unfathomable he can think of and create this amount of content. What a commitment to make!
Question: What do you do Every Single Day without fail in your personal leadership?
The behavior must go from static to becoming automatic; even beginning as a worthy goal, morphing to a firm commitment, an eventual habit is cemented as a sacred goal so deep that we like to call it:
Instead of doing all else he could in life (watch tv, scroll social media, think about writing), Seth chooses deliberately to spend that time working on adding value through writing. Every Single Day.
That is the Power of his “Instead”.
What’s your “Instead”?
Here’s his last post about “The Streak” (from 2019) and confirms he’s gone 22 years without missing one day!
I received this email (screen shot below) on Sept. 4 about “Instead” and it made me think about all the ways Instead works so well.
Instead of setting a Goal, why not make a Promise?
Instead of making an excuse, do what you said you’d do.
Instead of cutting a corner, just go 100%, do the job right, well, and with pride.
So many great thoughts Seth inspires!
