Are You A Creator Or A Critic?

Great excerpt from Seth Godin’s new book “The Icarus Deception“:

Let me show you how pervasive the industrial mind-set is.  

If I show you a political tract or a blog post or a remarkable new poduct with text that contains a typo, what’s your first reaction?

If  all you can do is say, ‘You’re missing an r in the second paragraph,’ you’ve abandoned your humanity in favor of becoming a spell checker.

Compliance over inspiration.

Sure, yes, please, let’s kill all the typos.  But first, let’s make a difference.”

Makes you think doesn’t it.  Are you a creator or a critic? You get to choose.
