You rock was the title of Seth Godin’s blog today. Its impossible to be brilliant all the time, but you can for 5 mins a day.
Five minutes to write a blog post that changes everything, or five minutes to deliver an act of generosity that changes someone. Five minutes to tell the truth, or hear the truth. Five minutes a day you might do exceptional work, remarkable work, work that matters. Five minutes a day [to defeat fear] long enough to stand up and make a difference. From here
This might not sound like a lot but like he says, ‘It would be five minutes more than just about anyone else.’
I was looking for a creative birthday present for someone overseas and after reading Seth Godin’s blog post and a little googling I thought that since Obama has his best traits for all the world to see here we should all have one too. Make one for yourself or for a friend and put it somewhere for easy reference if you ever forget how awesome you are.
