I Have an Extra Copy of #SethGodin @thisissethsblog book, #Linchpin. Yours free, if you promise to take action with it

I have an extra copy of Seth Godin’s new book, Linchpin, which is yours free for the asking.  I would prefer to give it someone in San Antonio where I live, but if you write me a really great and compelling reason why you’d like the book, I will mail it to you.

There are no strings attached, except for the following request: 

You have to agree to read the book.  And you have agree to take one actionable item with it.

You don’t have to solve world peace.

You don’t have to get all the banks back in order.

And you don’t have to solve global chilling.

You can read several reviews on the Linchpin Squidoo here.

The basic premise of the book is that there now resides a new “linchpin” – hence the name, in the world of work and organizations.  Seth says that we have gone from a two teams (management and labor) to a third team, the linchpins – those who use their own means of production, to make a difference, to lead and connect us.

All I ask is that if give you the book, you’ll agree to take one actionable item in your work, or your life. 

For me?

I decided to reduce certain aspects of clutter and noise in my life and clear my mind even more so I can do better and more effective work for me- and my clients. 

I’m less stressed out and in learning to say “no” more often to projects or business opportunities that are not just right for me.  Doing so  let’s me be a better PR / Social Media advisor, strategist and doer. 

I am also now a Guest Lecturer at The University of Texas at San Antonio and while I am “teaching,” I’m really learning from my students.  That’s part of the art in which I was inspired by Seth’s book.  I’m learning that I can help others learn and in the process make learning a two-way dialogue and not just teacher lecturing to a group of MBA students.

So, send me an email to: alan at weinkrantz dot com, or just leave a comment. 

Tell me what you would do and hopefully with a few requests I’ll pick one that just feels right and be in touch.

Thanks for reading this post.

  1. Alan,I’d accept your challenge. The very little I’ve read of the book makes me feel as though I was able to accomplish a little of the linchpin concept while back in San Antonio, but have so far struggled to make the same difference since leaving.Frankly, that’s unacceptable to me and I’ve been searching for the right way (which is likely any way at this point) to get back to where I felt like I was making a difference.I’m in the beginning stages of working towards a big dream of mine that could hopefully help my industry better itself, so any positive changes I can make in my life can only help to accomplish those goals.Regardless, if you pick someone else, I’ll pick up this book and give it an open mind.Joe

  5. Alan,Seth Godin is one of those people who I know of, have read a few blogs, and that’s about it. In real estate social media circles, of course, he is talked about often and with high praise. I just seem to always have 20 other things someone has handed me or told me about that’s on my reading to-do list. Perhaps you can change that. Perhaps not. As for taking action…well, I wouldn’t be where I was if I didn’t act on the things I’ve learned – whether on my own or from those at the top of their game. I’m still rather new in real estate, but one of my goals is to move real estate and social media closer together here in San Antonio. We have a good core group, but I think we can do better. Much like Joe speaks of in his comment, I consider the connectivity to be a key part of social media and although I am still focusing on the relationship building part of it all, those connections eventually lead to the community connectability that I think is a key part of social media. Although I certainly hope I get the copy of the book, I would certainly be happy to “lose” to Joe, who is someone I paid a lot of attention to while I was still “meeting” the local San Antonio crowd. He definitely was a connector.
