repost: Seth Godin – “Tricked into playing the wrong game”

Written by Frank M. Lin 12/16/2016 12:44 am @ Hayward, California – Interesting little blog post by Seth…  we often compromise not out of necessity but because in the end it will help us achieve different but not necessarily better results.  Often time we can not stay pure and true…  However the projects that I am working on, I will try not to have any compromises because now I have 100% control.

Tricked into playing the wrong game

Posted by Seth Godin on December 14, 2016

The intelligent writer who dumbs down her work in order to make it more popular.

The successful small businessperson who gives up the edge that made the business work in order to make it bigger.

The entrepreneur who stops leading in order to chase a trend and get funded.

The interesting website that stops caring about content so it can focus on clicks.

The happy kid who abandons good friends in a search to be the cool kid instead.

The beloved brand that walks away from integrity in order to chase mass.

The engaged employee who gives up the craft in order to move up and become an unhappy manager instead…

Bigger isn’t better. It’s merely bigger. And the mass market might want what the mass market wants, but that doesn’t mean that it’s your market.
