Success…it takes work

Seth Godin just posted some great thoughts on what made the Beatles successful.

Hint: It was more than just doing their thing until lots of people noticed. It was lots of touring and work. Even when people began to take notice, they kept on working hard. Eventually, the big machine took over and success became easy.

But Seth does a great job of showing that most of us stop working too quickly and wonder why we don’t have the type of wild success you see with a group like the Beatles or a business like Starbucks.

At first, we may be working hard and seeing few results. Then, a few results may come in, but we shouldn’t stop there.

Sometimes, success takes time. Most of the time, success takes work.
