Linchpin: How to be Indispensable. Mastery Newsletter October 19, 2016

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

It’s not rocket science. Do what others are not willing to do. Do more to help others.

 

In your job, whatever it is, find ways to create value for your employer. So much value that you stand out.

 

In your relationships, go overboard. Give of yourself from the heart.

 

If you have a business, give so much value up front for free that you create a tsunami of good feeling toward you.

 

Serial entrepreneur Seth Godin write of this in his book Linchpin. Are You Indispensable?

 

“This is what the future of work (and the world) looks like. Actually, it’s already happening around you.” -Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos.com

 

In bestsellers such as Purple Cow and Tribes, Seth Godin taught readers how to make remarkable products and spread powerful ideas. But this book is about you-your choices, your future, and your potential to make a huge difference in whatever field you choose.

 

There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there’s a third team, the linchpins. These people figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

 

Linchpins are the essential building blocks of great organizations. They may not be famous but they’re indispensable. And in today’s world, they get the best jobs and the most freedom.

 

As Godin writes, “Every day I meet people who have so much to give but have been bullied enough or frightened enough to hold it back. It’s time to stop complying with the system and draw your own map. You have brilliance in you, your contribution is essential, and the art you create is precious. Only you can do it, and you must.”

Seems to me, we have to recognize that we have been bullied.

 

Godin says when we are, we retreat to our reptilian brain. This is the part of the brain responsible for survival, fight or flight.

 

It is key to find a way to drop the fear and anxiety so that we can move from the reptilian brain to the higher brain and also our hearts.

 

From our hearts, we can feel the connection to others, serve them and become indispensable. Not just in our jobs, our businesses, but also our relationships.

 

Being indispensable creates value for others and builds our self-esteem.

 

Can you find a way to use laughter, smiling, exercise, breathing and/or meditation to give more from the heart?
