Workshops are not courses

Seth Godin Blog

Students get a ton of actionable insights from the highly-rated video courses I offer at Udemy. But a course can’t possibly provide the magic of a workshop. The Akimbo Workshops aren’t courses. In a typical course, that number would be zero.

Of course it's difficult.

Seth Godin Blog

Students choose to attend expensive colleges but don''t major in engineering because the courses are killer.  Of course it is. Doing more than the customary amount of customer service is expensive, time-consuming and hard to sustain. Raising money for short-term urgent projects is easier than finding support for the long, difficult work of changing the culture and the infrastructure.

Of course it’s a difficult problem

Seth Godin Blog

All the easy ones are already solved. Difficult problems are precisely what we signed up for, right? Or, at the very least, the only problems that are left.

Of course they’re wrong

Seth Godin Blog

But of course, everyone else is right as well. It seems like our take on culture is that we’re right. We shake hands properly, use a napkin properly, speak up at events problerly and even greet one another on the street properly. When I’m in a foreign city, I’m always amazed at how (friendly/offputting/aloof/intimate) everyone else is. They’re the home team, so they’re even more right than I am.

Of course it could be better

Seth Godin Blog

That’s not the question, not really. The question is, “what are you going to do about it?” ” And, to follow up, “what effort are you willing to put in to make it better?” ” If you’re not willing to make it better, it’s probably going to stay the way it is. The first day of summer is right around the corner (or winter, if you live in the other hemisphere).

Of course it's been done before

Seth Godin Blog

John Koenig calls it  vemödalen. The fear that you''re doing something that''s already been done before, that everything that can be done has been done. Just about every successful initiative and project starts from a place of replication. The chances of being fundamentally out of the box over the top omg original are close to being zero.
