Seth Godin is a genius

As you can tell from my Recommended Reading List that I am a huge fan of Seth Godin.  I subscribe to his blog, and am blown away by the wisdom Seth has.

Here is a copy of one of his latest posts titled Your Dent:

Are you making a dent in the universe?
Hint: lots of random pokes in many different spots are unlikely to leave much of an impact. And hiding out is surely not going to work at all.

Most of his posts aren't this short, but what is the wisdom packed in these three sentences?  If you want to poke a hole through a piece of tin, you smash one spot over and over and over again until you've successfully poked through.  The same thing goes with your passion, your calling, your . . . work.  If you want to make an impact on your family, your community, your nation, or even the world, become remarkable in one area and keep doing it over and over again.

What are you doing to make a dent?
