Cable News, and Fear

by Drew Meyers on 11:43 am October 13, 2016

This isn’t really related to real estate tech, so if that’s what you’re looking for today, you can head elsewhere. Seth Godin’s post yesterday was about Cable News. More specifically, fear and what’s causing it: What if the fear and malaise and anger isn’t merely being reported by cable news… What if it’s being caused by cable news? What if ubiquitous video accompanied by frightening and freaked out talking heads is actually, finally, changing our culture? Which came first, the news or the news cycle? We seem to … Read More »

Are You a Genius?

For your Friday viewing/listening pleasure, Seth Godin…

The Decline…or End…of Geography

by Drew Meyers on 9:12 am February 4, 2015

I’m not sure how many of you read Seth Godin. Those that do, know he recently wrote about the end of geography, and concluded with this statement: If you’re still betting on geography, on winning merely because you’re local, I hope you have a special case in mind. Real estate is local. It’s impossible to say otherwise. That said, there is some truth in what Seth says; just being local isn’t enough to win long term. Even though buyers don’t know what they don’t know, … Read More »

Failing = Success

by Drew Meyers on 6:52 am November 30, 2014

Via Seth Godin: One reason people who spend a lot of time thinking about and working on a problem or a craft seem to find breakthroughs more often than everyone else is that they’ve failed more often than everyone else. What problem do you care about solving for your clients so bad that you think about it every single day? How are you trying to solve it that no one else is trying?

Are You Speaking, or Speaking Up?

by Drew Meyers on 8:00 am June 4, 2014

Via Seth Godin: Opening the doors for the masses to speak, giving everyone who cares to have one a microphone–it has led to an explosion in people speaking. And most people, most of the time, are saying virtually nothing. Nothing worth reading, nothing worth repeating, certainly nothing worth remembering. They’re speaking, not speaking up. This is a topic I’ve written about before. 100% agreed. Are you simply speaking? Or actually speaking up?

An Interview with Seth Godin on Vulnerability

by Drew Meyers on 9:32 am May 22, 2014

You should all listen to the following interview with Seth Godin (with Debbie Millman at the 2014 HOW conference)… There is lots of great stuff in there, but one quote I particularly love: Effort isn’t the point. Impact is. [via Seth Godin]

When?

by Drew Meyers on 5:38 am April 14, 2014

Seth provides another good reminder: there is no perfect moment. Get off your butt, and do something (as I’ve said before). Not when you have $20k in savings. Not when your kids go to college. Not once you hire 5 more agents. Not once you close 3 more houses. Not next year. NOW. [Photo via http://onlinestrategy.ca/]

Do You Have an Amazing Mission?

by Drew Meyers on 9:55 am October 16, 2013

Greg put me on a Seth Godin kick with his the long game post. One of the interviews I listened to this morning is this Eventual Millionaire interview. Listen to it. Do you and your business have an amazing mission? If not, there is no other reason other than the fact you are afraid to. You’re afraid because it’s freaking hard. It’s easier to hide and do what everyone else does, going through life without anyone noticing or caring. An amazing mission matters. Choose to matter … Read More »

The long game

by Greg Fischer on 3:40 pm October 15, 2013

I recently listened to Seth Godin’s podcast “Startup School” on iTunes and reflected on my last few years running a real estate business. Not too long ago, I made a commitment to open a brokerage in which I ended up testing many different strategies and advertising mediums to drum up business along the way (most of which required much more time, money and creative capital than what was ultimately accomplished implementing them in the first place). What I realized listening to Godin was that I … Read More »

Are you Racing to the Bottom or the Top?

by Drew Meyers on 4:33 pm August 20, 2012

Take a few minutes and read Seth Godin’s Race to the Bottom post. It finishes with this quote: The race to the top makes more sense to me. The race to the top is focused on design and respect and dignity and guts and innovation and sustainability and yes, generosity when it might be easier to be selfish. It’s also risky, filled with difficult technical and emotional hurdles, and requires patience and effort and insight. The race to the top is the long-term path with … Read More »
