There's nothing ordinary about you

I attended the Seth Godin conference this past summer in Boston where Seth shared his thoughts on ordinary people and ordinary organizations.

“Organizations hire ordinary people to do ordinary things and get paid ordinary money; but, if you build a team, an organization, or a staff with extraordinary expectations, to do extraordinary tasks, this will be rewarded with extraordinary pay.”

Do you work in a place that’s ordinary or extraordinary?

Do you expect extraordinary pay while working in an ordinary environment?

Extraordinary work means you shipped.

What did you ship this summer?
