It’s Time to Poke The Box | Social Geek Radio

Seth Godin‘s Domino Project created a worldwide street team and I am proud to be one of the members of the Domino Street Team.

The team consists of individuals who are on a mission to spread ideas to people who care. We are digital natives who blog, tweet, take risks, and care about reinventing outdated systems.

We are part of the digital revolution in publishing and want to share our thoughts on Seth Godin‘s latest book “Poke The Box“. Join Deb Evans, me, and possibly a guest or two from the Domino Street Team as we discuss what it really means to “poke the box” and why Godin says, “The person who fails the most wins.”

Listen to Social Geek Radio on Blog Talk RadioYou can start the conversation by sharing your thoughts on the Social Geek Radio Facebook Page. Then, join us live by calling into the show tonight, Thursday, March 17th at 8pm CT/9pm ET or via the chat feature. Come “Poke the Box” with us!

Amazon.com: AK Stout’s Review of Seth Godin’s “Poke the Box”

I rarely read “this type” of book. I’m skeptical of motivational hype with all the pom-pom waving, “What are you waiting for?” type sentiments, but Poke the Box is different.

First of all, it’s only 85 pages – so skeptic or not, I highly doubted it would be the worst hour of my life. After reading just two pages, I knew I hadn’t made a bad decision. In fact, I was fairly certain that when I was done, I was going to be more than glad that I had started… and finished; a theme that runs deep through this manifesto.

Since reading the book, I’ve “poked” more than I had in a long time. I always have ideas, things I want to do, things I know I could do, if only I would just do them. It’s that “just doing” part that seems to get thrown by the wayside. In Poke the Box, Seth Godin tells us that now is the time, no more waiting, no more, “I’d like to do that,” or, “I’m going to do that.”

Right now is the time to DO.

I’ve been struggling with articulating the true power of this book and I think that is partly because it’s going to reverberate a little bit different with everyone. So, instead of telling you how it’s going to make you feel, my best advice is to read it and find out for yourself.
