Description

Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point: really hard, and not much fun at all.

And then you find yourself asking if the goal is even worth the hassle. Maybe you're in a Dip: a temporary setback that you will overcome if you keep pushing. But maybe it's really a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better, no matter how hard you try.

According to best-selling author Seth Godin, what really sets superstars apart from everyone else is the ability to escape dead ends quickly while staying focused and motivated when it really counts.

Winners quit fast, quit often, and quit without guilt: until they commit to beating the right Dip for the right reasons. In fact, winners seek out the Dip. They realize that the bigger the barrier, the bigger the reward for getting past it. If you can become number one in your niche, you'll get more than your fair share of profits, glory, and long-term security.

Losers, on the other hand, fall into two basic traps. Either they fail to stick out the Dip - they get to the moment of truth and then give up - or they never even find the right Dip to conquer.

Whether you're a graphic designer, a sales rep, an athlete, or an aspiring CEO, this fun little book will help you figure out if you're in a Dip that's worthy of your time, effort, and talents. If you are, The Dip will inspire you to hang tough. If not, it will help you find the courage to quit so you can be number one at something else.

Seth Godin doesn't claim to have all the answers. But he will teach you how to ask the right questions.

Du bons sens et une manière incroyable de l'expliquer

Un grand moment de bonheur de le lire et qui explique comment en tant qu'entrepreneur on franchi des étapes que d'autres n'osent pas et en même temps de se dire que l'on est distrait et bouffé par d'autres éléments qui n'en valent pas la peine. Restez focus , see long term , and keep going

Waste of time

I'm usually a big Seth Godin fan but this book was terrible! He spends an hour and a half telling you that if you cant be #1 then quit, if there is no light at the tunnel then quit, and don't imagine a light at the tunnel if there is none. Over and over.

What he doesn't say is how to know if there is a light at the end of the tunnel or if you are imagining one. When you have a great business idea, you always think there's light at the end of the tunnel but you might work for years in vain. This book doesn't teach you how to evaluate opportunities, how to know when to quit, how to know what's on the other side of the dip. It reads like a rough draft that should come back with repetitive sections crossed out and the words "needs to include more practical advice" on it.



I could have gotten the same advice from one paragraph about Jack Welsh. Godin just says if there is a big payoff after the dip then you should stay on track but if there's not then quit and don't be average. Duh. I think his editor should quit.

Seth Should Have Quit

I generally love Seth Godin's work, but The Dip, a book about the merits of quitting, was a meandering stream of consciousness essay that lacked substance and research.

Touches to quitting, when to quit - just touches

As an opening act, the book tries to convince you that you should aim to be best in the world. "If you are not sold on being the best in the world, you probably don't need the rest of what I am about to tell you.", author says around 12th minute, and this sentence was nerving. I am not interested in being sold on being the best in the world! I am interested in making smart decisions about quitting.

The book keeps going on the being-the-best idea for quite a while. Making smart decisions about when to quit and when to persevere has no what-so-ever correlation with being the best. Therefore in my opinion the book does not deliver what its title implies (will teach you when to quit or stick).

Examples I can remember either are too obvious: e.g. deciding to learn snowboarding,
a. you do the brave thing, start and go through the tough parts, and complete
b. you do the mature thing, evaluate and decide it is not something you want to do
c. you decide to learn, spent a lot of money and time, and quit, which is the stupid thing to do.

Or too vague: if you do not see light at the end of the tunnel, then maybe it is time to quit?

Or logically faulty: Any of the 42000 graduates can become the best, but they did not, because they quit because of one reason or another.

The author puts these in a much more attractive way than I did (and if you read all #1556# characters of my review, then, since you persevere as I do, you might still find the book worthy. After all, I am not saying it is totally worthless. Just don't have high hopes!)

Quit blah blah blah quit blah blah blah

I’ve just saved you some dollars or 1 Audible credit as the book can be summarized by what I’ve written in the subject line of this review. There’s truly nothing else in there.

No facts, no hard data, no research, just the word „quit” repeated in any and every possible way so that it gives you an impression that it is a tested concept.

I am giving two stars, not one, as I do admit that sometimes it is hard to quit what you have started and for some unidentified reason you continue. For starters, I didn’t quit listening to this audiobook 15 minutes after I started, even though I should have, as there was no reason to believe it would get any better, so it was a clear cul de sac which, as the Author suggests, should mean quitting immediately :-).

A must listen for any author who

If you are a writer, you know the dip. It often comes after your first few weeks of writing a new book, after the subject is no longer fresh, the story is pretty much fleshed out, or your outline is fairly complete. . . then boredom sets in. The new challenges that stimulated you into all that hard work earlier, are no longer interesting. Now the hard, boring, day to day work comes in. The poring over your every word, comma and plot point--many times over. You are in the dip. The thing that separates the pros from the wanna-bees. This audio makes this concept very real, which also makes it very possible to overcome. It also may help you with finding out just how vested you are in a story or book, and if you should quit or persevere. This book is definitely worth a listen.

Should have been nothing more than the closing quiz

Wow. This sounded like a schizophrenic read to me. “You must quit what has no future potential! But you must persevere through the dip!” (The “dip” The hard part before an imminent success breakthrough) “You must quit!” “Don’t be lazy and quit!” Back and forth, back and forth. Perhaps that was the author’s genius... to get you simply to consider quitting. But as for a clear crystal ball? Yeah, hm...

Short motivational speech

Fine if you just want a small motivational push in the right direction. Not really what I had in mind. Concepts were explained superficially in several ways, but I found concepts to be obvious and unhelpful so repetition felt monotonous. Was hoping for some new ideas and methods to apply to real life.

Good

this is nothing new or amazing, it is a good review of what most people already know just with new terms to define it.

I felt he narrated it with intent and skill. It was very easy to follow and understand. His voice transmitted what he wanted to convey through the book.

Nichts als heisse Luft

Ich mochte Seth Godin's Buch über Marketing, daher habe ich dieses gekauft. Aber das hätte ich mir sparen sollen (glücklicherweise gibt es die gefällt-mir-nicht Rückgabe). Der Autor erklärt im wesentlichen, dass man, wenn man in einer Sache der Beste der Welt sein will, dann diese Sache nicht aufgeben soll, andere Sachen aber schon. Duh.

Closed-minded

Although The Dip is very real and it was very helpful to think about it in detail, this book feels overall like a repetition of the mainstream North-American notion of being a winner instead of a loser. It fails to see the fine richness, spectra and wiser subtleties of a beautiful career and life. Even if your philosophy is indeed to be the best at one thing, I don't think there's anything in the book that you haven't heard before or already know from common sense. Sorry, Seth.

If you are a winner, then read this book.

Good advice for everyone who wants to succeed. The book will help you to get the courage to stop the dead end things society and school have told you over the years.

OK, aber keine neue Erkenntnis

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an The Dip gefallen?

Seth Godin, der Autor, spricht selbst! Und es ist mit unter 2 Stunden kurz gehalten.

Würden Sie sich jetzt auch für ein anderes Hörbuch von Seth Godin interessieren? Warum oder warum nicht?

JA

Welche Figur hat Seth Godin Ihrer Meinung nach am besten interpretiert?

sich selbst

Hat dieses Hörbuch Sie emotional stark bewegt? Mussten Sie laut z.B. lachen, weinen, zweifeln, etc.?

Nein

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Es ist nichts enthalten, was man nicht eh schon aus vielen anderen Ratgebern weiß. Dennoch ein nettes Hörbuch, gute Erinnerung worauf es ankommt!
