‘Move fast and break things’ isn’t a worthy slogan

…because ‘breaking things’ isn’t the point of your work.

How about, “Move fast and make things better,”

or

“Move fast and create possibility”?

The reason we hesitate to move fast is that we’re worried about what that implies.

Move fast and learn something.

Move fast and take responsibility.

Move fast and then do it again because now you’re smarter.

The alternative is to move slow. To move slow and to hide.

Which means that those you sought to connect, to help and to offer something to will suffer as they wait.

Don’t hoard your work. Own it and share it.

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.
