Calling all Linchpins...

Linchpin by Seth Godin is the best book I have read in years (Amazon.com link). In his book, Godin explains, "The Linchpin is the essential element, the person that holds part of the operation together. Without the linchpin, the whole thing falls apart."

Now Seth and his people are encouraging linchpins to get together for a second worldwide event on December 7 via Meetup. There is likely a Linchpin Meetup gathering in your area (link). Currently there are 583 upcoming Linchpin Meetups with 8051 people in 101 countries.

And linchpins "ship." Godin explains shipping in Linchpin: "The only purpose of starting is to finish, and while the projects we do are never finished, they must ship. Shipping means hitting the publish button on your blog, showing a presentation to the sales team, answering the phone, selling the muffins, sending out your references. Shipping is the collision between your work and the outside world."

And I add... shipping is bringing your idea to a Linchpin Meetup and sharing it.

So here is you chance to get together with fellow linchpins. In his awesome blog (link), Seth Godin describes the first Linchpin Meetup last June as: "people discovering others that they can work with, hire, work for, connect with or otherwise hang out."

This offers an opportunity to network as well as receive support and feedback from like-minded people. I envision it as "a group to support and challenge each other to follow through with our projects/dreams" as described in the Spokane Linchpin Meetup page.

Jamie Lynn Morgan envisions the Coeur d' Alene Linchpin Meetup as an opportunity to: "Get together and chat about how we can be Linchpins in our own communities and lives. Networking and Drinks. Perfect combo!"

One thing is for sure- our current world desperately needs linchpins working together. So linchpins come out- wherever you are.

Happy New Year, and congratulations on the alnuch of this site devoted to such an important topic. While we're on the topic of the Tao and ancient wisdom, Lao Tzu is credited with saying: If you want to lead the people, you must follow them. Or stand behind them depends on the translation. Nonetheless, the idea is clear: followership is both how to bring out and use your leadership as a participant or team member, i.e., not in the designated leadership role, and also, a key attitude leaders must have, that his or her power is only valid if it is ratified, and this comes not through force, but through agreement.Thanks for an inspiring post. I look forward to reading more from you both on the topic.

You have nothing to lose with positive and powerful stories that promote your brand and your business. I also think that people are getting more and more interested in who you really are.
