Seth Grodin's Blog recently post the questions that I had long sought to consider in this blog. But of course since he is Seth and I am not he gets props for saying to more people. I would however like to consider his post:
16 questions for free agents
1. Who are you trying to please?
2. Are you trying to make a living, make a difference, or leave a legacy?
8. Which: to invent a category or to be just like Bob/Sue, but better?
11. Choose: teach and lead and challenge your customers, or do what they ask...
15. How close to failure, wipe out and humiliation are you willing to fly? (And while we're on the topic, how open to criticism are you willing to be?)
16. What does busy look like?
I wish I had posted it first, but it is a good list.
