Seth Godin's daily blog posts generally provide thoughts to mull over.  Good stuff, that, for daily consumption.

Some of his thoughts, though, seem to stick around and become a pivotal part of shaping thinking. (For me, anyway.)

Like this, for instance:

"Someone who gets better whenever he fails will always outperform someone who responds to failure by getting worse. This isn't something in your DNA, it's something you can learn or unlearn.
The appropriate response is not to try harder, to bear down and grind it out. The response that works is to understand the nature of the cycle and to change it from the start. You must not fight the cycle, you must transform it into a different cycle altogether. It's a lot of work, but less work than failing." --Seth Godin
