March's read: “The Dip” by Seth Godin
The Dip: The extraordinary benefits of knowing when to quit (and when to stick), by Seth Godin. (2007)
Every new project (or career or relationship) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point - really hard, really not fun. At this point you might be in a Dip, which will get better if you keep pushing, or a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better no matter how hard you try. The hard part is knowing the difference and acting on it.
Seth Godin is the author of 18 bestseller books that have been translated into more than 35 languages. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything. He holds an MBA from Stanford University.
You don't have to have finished the book to join us!
Please join us for another lively discussion lead by our well-regarded, well-qualified and popular Montse. (bio below) We are limiting our group to 10-12 so our discussions can be more intimate, and “meaningful.” As always we encourage your comments and suggestions. PLEASE PLEASE, if you register, join us. We are limiting our group size and if you are a no-show, we are missing a voice as well as not making that spot available to other members. (You can cancel on Eventbrite too.)
