Seth Godin is my favorite author. I read a couple of his books. I read this one last year — Linchin: Are you indispensable? I took some notes while reading it. Below are the reading notes.

And it is a choice. A choice to buy into the fear and the system or to chart your own path and create value as you do. It is your job to figure out how to chart the path, because charting the path is the point.
Indoctrination: How we got here

School exists for a reason, but that reason might not be what you think it is.
Become the Linchpin
The linchpin is an individual who can walk into chaos and create order, some who can invent, connect, create, and make things happens. Every worthwhile institution has indispensable people who make differences like these.”
