Why are some people easily outsourced, downsized, or freelanced into obscurity, while others have their pick of opportunities? In his most powerful book yet, Seth Godin argues that it's more essential than ever to become indispensable - to become a linchpin. Linchpins are the essential building blocks of great organizations: they invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They love their work and pour their best selves into it and turn each day into a kind of art - and, in today's world, they get the best jobs and the most freedom.

Godin shows that the key to being indispensable is overcoming the fears that hold most of us back. If you have you ever found a shortcut that others missed, seen a new way to resolve a conflict, or made a connection with someone others couldn't reach, then you have what it takes to become indispensable. It's time to stop complying with the system and draw your own map.

Agreed. Having been out of school for 10 years or so and now teaching occasionally at Metro Community College, the motivation to solve problems is pretty low with students especially. This is yet another great read from Seth Godin that highlights the need for our society to get off the factory mentality and embrace the fact that personal responsibility and action combined with our natural gifts and art/talents is the only way to go.
