Often enough on this blog I’ve used Seth Godin blog posts as starting fodder for a longer post. Today I finally got a chance to catch up on Seth’s latest posts. Here are my favorites with a few lines to go with them.

Please Complain: Every organization could use a better customer feedback process. Whether you are a team or a work group, figure out how to get the feedback then listen to it and listen well. It will help you drive your change.
Why Wait?: Don’t rely on due dates. Just do your work. Amazing things will happen.
