Give Gifts - May 15th

The last few days I have been listening to the audiobook version of Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?

This has proven to be a very enlightening book about how to become a remarkable person in the work force.

One insight that I have gained from this book is the importance of giving gifts. Godin explains that we should all strive to become artists who give gifts.
"In the linchpin economy, the winners are … the artists who give gifts. Giving a gift makes you indispensable. Inventing a gift, creating art – that is what the market seeks out, and they give us are the ones who earn our respect and attention."
(Seth Godin, Linchpin)
Lesson Learned: Look for ways to be an artist and give gifts freely (not for what you'll get in return)
