#Shoes Matter! Have You Got Your @HometownShoes Yet?

Hiya SCG,

why all that noise about shoes? Isn’t it too materialistic to say that shoes matter? Isn’t it only image component? Well, there are three reasons why I am so obsessed with shoes. The first reason has roots all the way in my childhood; ever since I was a child I was taught (by both my grandparents and parents) that one should ALWAYS wear clean – high quality and polished shoes, because: [Read more…]

[Updated] 27 Video Collection of Seth Godin’s Talks

Hey SCG,

let me serve you a special video shipment, dedicated to a man who has inspired me, continuously inspires me & I bet that, he will carry on inspiring me on my journey. Yeah, you know him, too. I am talking about the Seth Godin. If you were too busy to read any of his books [he wrote 13 of them!]  or following daily doses of Seth’s blog & you are not very familiar with his art (yet!) -> Now is your chance to catch up with Seth (or consider this as refresh on his philosophy you already know about).  I suspect, that after watching following 10 videos of Seth, you might will be in the picture and on the same page with those us who ship, have guts to challenge a status quo and draw maps instead of following them.  Enjoy!

Why Is R(SS)eading Good For You?

Hiya SCG,

lately there have been quite a buzz  about RSS feeds and its survival chances. Seth Godin is certainly in favor of RSS feeds, because as he said: RSS is quiet and fast and professional and largely hype-free. Mathew Ingram from GigaOM has elaborated on RSS fuzz with great post: “Sure, RSS Is Dead — Just Like the Web Is Dead“, which bottom line was: “The fact that RSS may be fading in terms of mainstream user awareness is actually a good thing rather than a bad one.” Fred Wilson dedicated two posts to RSS feeds; First one was about how RSS are not dead and then he continued with break down of traffic and RSS leads to his AVC blog. So,what has Inspiring Shipments (#IS) to say about RSS?

(Y)our Mediocre Work Affects Whole Country or Why Slovakia Needs to Wake Up Before It Is Too Late

Hiya SCG,

you might have noticed pretty modest amount of my shipping and insights this week. It was caused by very intensive 3 days, which moved me and transformed me again. I will not go into details much, as I am still digesting lessons learned from it and how it has affected me. But briefly, I have turned down assignment and have given up couple of thousands Euro of income for next month, because I could not risk my name and credibility to deliver work, which is not top-notch. (requirement was to do it “just like that”…) [Read more…]
