Hey, Hey! Is another new Friday 

Quick Quotable

The problem with competition is that it takes away the requirement to set your own path, to invent your own method, to find a new way. ~~Seth Godin

In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is a failure. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible. ~~Seth Godin

The future of publishing is about having connections to readers and the knowledge of what those readers want. ~~Seth Godin

Today Sharing

A Thanksgiving Day  

In six days, just about everyone in the United States and around the world will celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday of the year: I’m hoping that this year, you and your family will start a new holiday tradition.
I’m delighted to point you to the Thanksgiving Reader from Seth Godin is an American author, entrepreneur, marketer, and public speaker. The file from him is free, it’s printable, it’s sharable and it might give you something universal and personal to do this Thanksgiving.

Just like about everyone, I’ve been following the horrific events in Paris. But I hope at its best, this is a holiday about gratitude, about family and about possibility. It brings people together not just only to  celebrate the thankgiving, but to look one in another in the eye and share something (F)un, (S)pecial and Y)ounquie magical.

Here is an idea from Seth Godin at your Thanksgiving celebration, consider going around the table and having each person read a section aloud. During these ten or fifteen minutes, millions of people will all be reading the same words, thinking about the same issues, connecting with each other over the essence of what we celebrate. After all the travel and the cooking and the hassle, for these ten or fifteen minutes, perhaps we can all breathe the same air and think hard about what we’re thankful for. 

It’s free to download and share. I hope you’ll let some people in your life know about it and incorporate it in your celebration this year. There’s no commercial element involved—after all, it’s Thanksgiving.  

Please share. And we’re happy to hear your suggestions. Thank you for everything you do, and for the difference you make to your family and the people who care about you. And for international readers…Wherever you are, you could celebrate Thanksgiving today. Or any day. 

A modern Thanksgiving would celebrate two things: 

The people in our lives who give us the support and love we need to make a difference, and… 

The opportunity to build something bigger than ourselves, something worth contributing to.

The ability to make connections, to lend a hand, to invent and create. There are more of both now than there have ever been before. For me, for you, for just about all of us. 

Thanks to Seth Godin for his Thanksgiving Reader, writing and sharing.
