From my perspective, Seth has written perhaps his most impactful book yet. The Linchpin is a new category of person, one who engages their personal ‘art’ in what they do, who can see the course to take when a map doesn’t exist.
This book is a mix of looking at how we think; how we decide; how we got here; and, what is going to be needed to be successful moving forward.
To become a linchpin is to become indispensable.
Seth does a good job encouraging the reader to apply their ‘art’, that ‘extra something’ you enjoy doing, to become indispensable, to leader your organization forward–regardless of your position within it. Rather than simply be a cog in the boss’ machine, do more, be more, whether you reap direct reward (e.g. $$) or not.
Along the way, you might learn a few other things. One of which, led me to post, “Mid Life Crisis Explained.”
The world has changed. Permanently. We can struggle to maintain status quo, or, at least contemplate the options Seth presents.
