For the last few weeks, I've been sharing quotes of things that I said in my book. Not just because I love the idea of someone quoting me — though who doesn't kinda love the idea of that? — but because I said a lot of useful stuff in there that was worth repeating. I wrote my book after I'd gone through the tedious, yet very helpful process of figuring out exactly how I spent my time and money... and how to run my business better once I had that information. My whole crazy, detailed approach is laid out in a pretty honest way. So, lately I've been sharing tidbits from that process. This week, however, I'm giving it over to Seth Godin, a god among marketers. He has started businesses, written tons of books (18!), and is a prolific blogger and renowned idea generator. Kinda makes you ask yourself "What's my excuse for not getting stuff done?!" So I bring you these Seth Godin quotes not to make you feel like a slacker — because seriously, I already feel like one after thinking about everything he's done! — but to share wisdom and insights from someone I admire.
Be Oh So Quotable This Week!
Maybe you'll find a way to work these Seth Godin quotes into a conversation this week. Think how deep you'll sound when you come out with a doozie like, "Dig your well before you're thirsty."

I bet your to-do list is a mile long! Make sure that the items at the top of your list are the things that relate to being more profitable.
