The Fantastic Life

Who Are We Seeking to Become?


What are you doing to make yourself better? Today, and every day…we get the privilege to live our life. Today, do something to take yourself down the path toward who YOU want to become.

It’s not just a privilege. I think it’s an obligation–to yourself.

Rule #4 from my book The Fantastic Life: Play Where You Can Win

Every day you have the opportunity to make yourself better, even in the smallest ways. Whether it’s waking up an hour earlier or choosing a healthier dinner option, you can get a win every day.


Who are we seeking to become?

Posted by Seth Godin on April 21, 2017


We get what we invest in. The time we spend comes back, with interest.

If you practice five minutes of new, difficult banjo music every day, you’ll become a better banjo player. If you spend a little bit more time each day whining or feeling ashamed, that behavior will become part of you. The words you type, the people you hang with, the media you consume…

The difference between who you are now and who you were five years ago is largely due to how you’ve spent your time along the way.

The habits we groove become who we are, one minute at a time. A small thing, repeated, is not a small thing.

[And the same thing is true for brands, organizations and movements.]
