And I’ve gobbled up most of ’em.
I’m also addicted to his blog — SethGodin.com — which is where Seth wrote a kinda funny post about “talker’s block” earlier this week.
His point was that if nobody suffers from talker’s block — in fact, inane blather is all too common — why is writer’s block as big a problem as it is?
Godin suggests we should all write like we talk, which I think is dandy advice.
But his blog post also reminds me that most of us talk way too much and listen too little.
That can kill your business.
Instead of focusing on what prospects, clients, and customers tell us, we’re usually busy chattering about our latest sales pitch.
That may work in a sales letter, but it sucks big time in face-to-face meetings.
Listeners win. Big talkers don’t.
Albert Einstein probably jotted down more formulas than anybody else in history.
Didja know he even had a formula for success?
Here’s how he described it…
“If A equals success, then the formula is A equals X plus Y plus Z. X is work, Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.”
I’m NOT making this up.
And who’d say Einstein was wrong?
By the way, Einstein’s success formula plays a vital part in my newest product, which launches very soon. Early responders will get a deep discount on launch day, so keep your eyes open for it. In the meantime, you might find some items of interest right here.
