Publisher's Summary

Are You Ready to Raise a Ruckus?
You're probably good at your job, maybe even great. But secretly, do you yearn to fly higher? To challenge the rules and surprise us with something remarkable? To instigate delight, connection, and real change? To choose better over safer?
Business and cultural visionary Seth Godin has transformed the terrain of marketing and commerce more than once. But many of his readers remain stuck in their own work lives. So what's keeping us back? "The problem isn't a lack of knowledge or skill," he's realized. "The problem is fear." With Leap First, Seth Godin is here to help. This immersive audio program invites us to learn with him personally, unrehearsed and in the moment, as he shines a light for us, not with answers but with questions on the road to:


Overcoming our instinctual resistance to risk and change
Discovering our creative genius in the face of the empty page or whiteboard
Finding the courage to share that work - with vulnerability, generosity, and results
Recorded in an intimate gathering of aspiring entrepreneurs, writers, and leaders, Leap First teaches us 49 essential principles, practices, and life lessons that have helped Seth the most in his own work and life. More than an audiobook or keynote speech, each track here presents a carefully chosen catalyst intended to trigger our own passion and insight with each listening.
"It always feels too soon to leap. But you have to. Because that's the moment between you and remarkable. I hope this helps you return to that edge. And then, to leap."

Thank you

I didn't want it to end! Seth Godin is a realist and that is what motivates me not the hooha motivation stuff that is every where now days.
Thank you for putting out your art to help me do my art

Great content but audio needs to improve

Any additional comments?

Seth is great but his content deserves better production work. I have 3 audio books from Seth with subpar audio quality. I know Seth himself don't really care about audio quality as he mentioned in his speech but it does make a difference. With proper loudness normalization and equalization, they can sound a lot clearer especially when you listen while walking on the street or driving.

Don't eat the marshmallow

I love that this isn't an audio version of a book but it is a true audiobook. Created precisely for audio format.
Seth delivers many truth bombs that will inspire you do to your best work and live a life that matters. For the cheap price buying this audiobook shouldn't even be a question
Get it!

Short listen reinforcing the best of Set Godin

Where does Leap First rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was short and concise, it's a quick listen and if you've read other Seth Godin books you'll appreciate the content, I certainly did. A decent book for its length.

If you’ve listened to books by Seth Godin before, how does this one compare?

I wouldn't consider it a full book but defiantly a good recap of the ideas Seth Godin goes into in his other books.

Insightful

This is a great lecture that will help you re-align your thoughts. Make you aware of why we seek failure in advance. Understanding why we do this is the first step - to pulling off a spinning-birdie-kick right in the face of Sir.Fear himself.
