Say it! Write it! Film it! Share it!

Create it!

It's as simple as that. 

Seth Godin's book, Linchpin, has some great advice to help you change from a cog in the machinery to an artist in your industry or company.

Seth writes, "You have brilliance in you, your contribution is essential, and the art you create is precious. Only you can do it, and you must."

But so often we're afraid of creating. It's really scary to hang your ideas on the wall for others to critique. But that's part of the creation process. Accept the feedback from the people who have something constructive to say. Reject it from the naysayers...and there will be naysayers.

Seth Godin says it this way, "Every time you raise your hand, send an email, launch a product or make a suggestion, you're exposing yourself to criticism. Not just criticism, but the negative consequences that come with wasting money, annoying someone in power or making a fool of yourself. It's no wonder we're afraid to ship." (Read his full blog post's worth it!)

Our advice? When you feel like you have something to say, say it! Write it! Film it! Share it!

This is the basis of the Learning Explosion. It's how we all learn together.
