Why We Don’t Often Succeed: Day 19 of 30

Typically I would write about my own experiences and thoughts for the daily challenge. I’ve never tried to post a video link before and have that be the post. However, I was really moved by this one. Yesterday I posted Unstuck and from that work I found today’s video from Simon Sinek who I would call one of the greats. It’s 16 minutes and some change long. It left such an impact I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I had to share it with you. So take a listen.

I got hooked on Simon when I heard him at work during one of our downloads about the Golden Circle. Which by the way is another great one to watch. People don’t read about what you want to write, but want to read your posts because of why you write them. I’m adapting the idea to my writing philosophy of course, but you’d get the point if you watched the Golden Circle video.

He has 4 points that he goes deep on in this chat:

  • Parenting
  • Technology
  • Impatience
  • Environment

Let me know in the comments below about what you think. I’m pretty sure you will make up the short fall and do your part after listening to it.

  1. Everything typed was very logical. But, what about this?
    suppose you added a little content? I am not suggesting your information isn’t good., however
    what if you added a post title that makes people want more?
    I mean Why We Don’t Often Succeed: Day 19 of 30 –
    Welcome to In-Between the Pages is a little boring.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write post titles
    to get people interested. You might try adding
    a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what
    you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.
