Description

Every new project (or career or relationship) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point - really hard, really not fun. At this point you might be in a Dip, which will get better if you keep pushing, or a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better no matter how hard you try. The hard part is knowing the difference and acting on it. According to marketing guru and best-selling author Seth Godin, what sets successful entrepreneurs (and pop stars and weight lifters and car salesmen) apart from everyone else is their ability to give up on Cul-de-Sacs while staying motivated in Dips. Winners quit fast, quit often and quit without guilt - until they commit to beating the right Dip for the right reasons. You'll never be number one at anything without picking your shots very carefully. The Dip is a short, entertaining book that helps you do just that. It will forever alter the way you think about success.

    After reading this book, the concept of 'the dip' is much clearer and I realise how common it is and how much easier it is to deal with. This has changed my outlook for the better.

    I’m 18 and so grateful to have found Godin’s books so young. The Dip will give a clear, entertaining and matter-of-fact perspective as to why your “friend” never finishes anything and how she can go about changing that. There’s a refreshing lack of self-help melodrama in The Dip. Godin won’t compare your stressful new app-launch to a Spartan going into battle, nor will he intimately reveal his own adversity so you feel “OMG, SO INSPIRED!”. Instead, he dishes-out inescapably accurate information on why you quit and puts the onus on you to apply it. If you’re a somewhat sensible human-being with a long-term project that isn’t going smoothly, then I guarantee The Dip will improve your life.
  • Superb!
