Seth Godin Wisdom

I love Seth Godin’s wisdom and this latest blog posting is so right on libraries I am reproducing it:

Questions or answers
by Seth Godin

You can add value in two ways:

* You can know the answers.
* You can offer the questions.

Relentlessly asking the right questions is a long term career, mostly because no one ever knows the right answer on a regular basis.”

I think you can insert your own library insight here. I doubt that there is anyone who can’t build a long career in libraries by understanding and implementing these ways to add value described by Seth Godin, whew!

  1. That post leapt out at me too, and makes me realize that there’s been a shift in my learning: I used to to try to know all the answers, and now my brain has shifted to trying to ask and anticipate the right questions. A response to information overload?
