What Matters Now – get the free ebook


From Seth Godin’s blog:

Now, more than ever, we need to shake things up.

Now, more than ever, we need a different way of thinking, a useful way to focus and the energy to turn the game around. I hope a new ebook I’ve organized will get you started on that path. It took months, but I think you’ll find it worth it the effort. (Download here).

Here are more than seventy big thinkers, each sharing an idea for you to think about as we head into the new year. From bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert to brilliant tech thinker Kevin Kelly, from publisher Tim O’Reilly to radio host Dave Ramsey, there are some important people riffing about important ideas here. The ebook includes Tom Peters, Jackie Huba and Jason Fried, along with Gina Trapani, Bill Taylor and Alan Webber.

10 Things I want for Christmas

  1. nothing
  2. not anything
  3. nix
  4. nil
  5. nada
  6. naught
  7. zero
  8. zip
  9. zilch
  10. bugger all

I’m not kidding!

I have waaaaay too much “stuff”, it’s ridiculous. I honestly can’t bear the thought of getting even more to add to my collection of “things”. Apart from that, money is tight this year and I would rather that the people I care about spend their finances wisely instead of blowing it all on some stupid end-of-year splurge. And I shall be doing just that – paying off my credit card. The only gifts I’ll be buying this year are for my kids. No-one else.

So that’s it, I don’t want anyone to buy me anything for Christmas and I hope people can respect that.

If you feel that you HAVE to part with your money, please send a donation to a worthwhile charity like the NSPCA.

That would rock.
