Linchpin | September 29, 2010

At the moment I’m reading a book called Linchpin, by Seth Godin. It’s all about how smart I am. Well, not just me, it would be about how smart you are, if you were reading it. I’m only about a third of the way through it so far and suspect the book will turn on me at some point, but right now it makes me feel pretty good about myself.

One thing that has thrown me is this diagram…


It’s a great Venn diagram, for sure, but I’m having some trouble with it. You see, I’ve always seen myself as Perseverance with a little bit of Charm…

  1. Hi Jon,

    I really like the venn diagram and I was wondering if the venn diagram is something you invented yourself or adapted from Seth Godin’s linchpin book?

    If it is your making … would you mind if I use it and reference it back to you?

    Many thanks, Kwai

    • That’s actually lifted straight from the book – or at least I found someone who’d already lifted it from the book and posted it on the internet. I wish I had invented it, although I wouldn’t have made myself a “Princess” if I had.
