The old saying is wrong—winners do quit, and quitters do win. Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point—really hard, and not much fun at all. And then you find yourself asking if the goal is even worth the hassle. Maybe you’re in a Dip—a temporary setback that will get better if you keep pushing. But maybe it’s really a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better, no matter how hard you try.
According to popular business blogger and bestselling author Seth Godin, what really sets superstars apart from everyone else is the ability to escape dead ends quickly, while staying focused and motivated when it really counts.
Winners quit fast, quit often, and quit without guilt until they commit to beating the right Dip for the right reasons.
In fact, winners seek out the Dip. They realize that the bigger the barrier, the bigger the reward for getting past it. If you can become number one in your niche, you ll get more than your fair share of profits, glory, and long-term security.
Losers, on the other hand, fall into two basic traps.
Either they fail to stick out the Dip they get to the moment of truth and then give up or they never even find the right Dip to conquer.
Whether you're a graphic designer, a sales rep, an athlete, or an aspiring CEO, this fun little book will help you figure out if you're in a Dip that's worthy of your time, effort, and talents.
If you are, The Dip will inspire you to hang tough. If not, it will help you find the courage to quit so you can be number one at something else. Seth Godin doesn't claim to have all the answers. But he will teach you how to ask the right questions.

In my opinion, based on my own personal experience, kids function best when they're real clear about exactly what's expected of them in any given situation or under any particular set of circumstances.
Every year since he first began school, in the day or two prior to the beginning of each new school year, I've sat down with my son, who's now ten years old, to "lay down the law", so to speak, about exactly what I expected of him in school and to issue him his "marching orders" for the upcoming school year.
This year won't be any exception. Although my expectations for him haven't changed over the last several years, with a new school year about to begin, I've been thinking about them again in preparation for our annual talk together and thought I'd take a few moments to share them with you.
Here they are:
Expectation #1 - I expect him to behave himself and treat others as he'd like to be treated.
The first and single, most important thing I expect of him in school is to be polite, mind his manners, and treat others as he'd like to be treated.
All three elements of this expectation are very closely related and because he understands *why* they're important, he has no trouble whatsoever living up to them.
One summer day, shortly before he started school, we were driving somewhere (probably a toy store :-)), when, seemingly out of nowhere, he asked me what I knew about this "God thing", as he phrased it.
As simply as I could put it, I shared with him my personal belief...
That One is All and All is One. That one Intelligent Substance manifests itself as what appears to be many elements of the material world.
We're all made from the same Stuff, a Thinking Stuff.
After I finished my simplified explanation of this concept, he sat there quietly for a moment or two, staring out the car window, then he looked at me and said...
"Daddy, that makes sense!"
And, with "ah-ha" written all over his face, he added...
"So that's why you're always telling me to love my neighbor as myself and to treat other people the way I want to be treated, because we're all one, right Daddy?"
At age five...
He got it! 🙂
Expectation #2 - I expect him to do his best.
Unlike many, if not most, parents and teachers, I could care less what his grades in school are...
You should see the look on people's faces, especially his teachers, when I tell them this. 🙂
So, what do I expect?
I expect him to put everything he's got into everything he does and do the best work he can possibly do.
Throughout his writings, Wallace D. Wattles, best known for his classic masterpiece "The Science of Getting Rich", repeatedly stresses the importance of doing all you can do each day and doing each separate act in the most perfect
That's *exactly* what I expect of him!
If, every single day, he does *all* he can do that day and if, every single day, he does each separate thing he does in school in the most *perfect* manner possible, with the purpose of learning...
And that, in the opinion of his teachers and/or the school system, earns him an "A"...
If it earns him a "B"...
If it earns him a "C"...
If it earns him a "D"...
If it earns him an "F"...
I really don't care! 🙂
Because doing everything you can do each day and doing each separate thing you do in the most perfect manner possible with a purpose is the secret to success in anything and if he just learns this one lesson and applies it, he'll be successful in life regardless of what his grades in school are.
Expectation #3 - I expect him to have fun.
Life is meant to be fun, not a bore, and I expect him to have fun in school.
I don't expect him to be the "class clown" or a "wise guy".
I do expect him to look for ways to make his "work" fun.
If he learns how to make his "work" fun, he'll never have to "work" a day in his entire life.
There you have them...
My ten-year-old's "marching orders" for the upcoming school year.
In prior school years, because he's been very clear about exactly what I expected of him in school and because he's been very clear about exactly why I expected those things of him, he's never failed to live up to my expectations and make me very proud of him...
I don't expect this school year to be any different. 🙂
