You don’t want to change the world…


Media_httpimagesinsta_hghzg

Everybody wants to be on the winning team.

Some people don’t care what team they’re on, to paraphrase Bob Dylan, so long as they’re winning.

I’ve been around those people all my life. Most were forgotten, by me and everybody else.

Some people don’t mind if they win or lose, as long as they don;t get hurt.

Some people don’t mind losing, so long as they get to play the game they want to play.

And then there’s the people who want to win, and win big, but ONLY if they somehow manage to improve the game overall.

Not just raise THEIR game, but raise THE game altogether. Even if when they’re losing, they seem to manage it.

Those people have the most fun. They’re also the most fun to play with.

And they also seem to win the most, over time.

Testimonials

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Lydia Depillis

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

Len Schlesinger
Former President, Babson College

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
