I took The Marketing Seminar with Seth Godin a few years ago. It was overwhelming.
There was much to absorb. And the course encouraged a lot of engagement and interaction to get the most out it.
My problem is that I’m a lurker. I’m an introvert. I would much rather read the material and absorb it on my own time. I didn’t want to talk to people.
The course was busy with lots of discussions and feedback.
But Seth is smart. He knows that the best way to understand and learn material is to talk about it, discuss it, use it, live it, and debate it.
We were encouraged to give feedback on other people’s questions, comments, and issues. It’s easier to be objective with other people’s problems than your own. Even if they’re struggling with the same things you are.
One of the first questions asked was: What is the change you want to make?
I think about that question a lot. Sometimes I think I know the answer.
I want to help people see that they are enough.
So many of us feel inadequate.
I think a lot of the pain in the world is a result of those feelings of inadequacy.
But how do you make that change? To show people that they are enough? What does it look like?
I’m still trying to figure that one out…
