Hi. I’m Seth Godin. I’m a teacher, and I do projects.

For more than thirty years, I’ve been trying to turn on lights, inspire people and teach them how to level up. This blog has been appearing daily for more than a decade. One day, if we meet, I hope you’ll share with me your favorite posts. Even better, I’d like to hear about how a book or course helped you interact with the world differently and make a difference.

Your anecdote isn’t true. I know it happened. I know that your experience, your feelings, your outcomes are real. And they’re yours. Statistics suffer when compared to anecdotes. Because your mileage may vary. Your interaction with the randomness of the world will never match up to what the statisticians tell us to expect. Because averages […]

That’s unlikely. If I’m lucky, I can glance at them. But just for a second or two. Our fears burn so bright that if we truly face them, we think we might be blinded. Of course, we may think we’re looking at our fears, dead on, but it’s more likely we’re just seeing a distraction, […]

If you want to change the mind of a scientist, do more science. Do better science. Get your hands on the data set and prove your assertions. If you want to change the mind of a bureaucrat, bring more power. If you want to change the minds of the nerds, build something that’s new. If […]

Halloween is a month away. And over the next few weeks, a lot of cheap chocolate is going to get bought in preparation for the ringing doorbell. Cheap chocolate is made from beans picked by poor kids in dangerous conditions. And cheap chocolate is made from beans that don’t even taste that good, but come […]

It’s worth remembering that if someone knows how to do something, that means, with sufficient effort, you could probably learn it too. You might not be willing to put in the time and effort, but it’s learnable. “I went to art school. That means that everything I can do with a pen you can learn […]

When anyone has the ability to announce breaking news, urgent updates, RIGHT NOW, steal attention and emergencies, then sooner or later, many will do just that. Attention is scarce, scarcer than ever, and we’ve given everyone a machine that can steal attention, and a keyboard that can be used to steal even more. The race […]

That’s something worth building. Electricity is a ratchet with leverage. Once communities have access to a little electricity, a solar lantern, say, they quickly discover that they want/need more electricity. The productivity increases create more income which gives them more money to buy more electricity. The leverage that this productivity and income give them (combined […]

But in fact, just about everything is a portrait. It’s our temporary understanding of the world as it is, not an actual experience of it. We see things through our filters, match them to our expectations and live out our story of what we expect and why. We build a narrative around every interaction we […]

Democracy is a marketing problem. Health is a marketing problem. Climate change is a marketing problem. Growing your organization, spreading the word, doing work you’re proud of–these aren’t engineering problems or economics problems. They’re marketing problems. That’s because humans make choices. If we live in a culture where people are free to choose, we’ve offered […]
