As busy solopreneurs, I know that you don’t have time to read all of the latest books, so I’d like to bring you my takeaways from various books I’ve read. In today’s Book Time with Gabe episode, I’ll recap my favorite key points from Seth Godin’s book, The Practice.
At first glance, it seems like this book is solely meant for creatives, but as I read it I realized that The Practice is also a book for entrepreneurs. In this episode, I not only share my key takeaways from Seth’s book, but I also share how I plan to use them to further my goals. Listen in to hear Seth Godin’s tips on how to improve yourself and your work.

We become what we do
We are the sum of the things we do each day, so if you want to change your story you have to change your actions. If you want to become a better golfer, you need to go play more golf. If you want to become a writer, you need to write each day. Think of something that you want to change in your life or your business and start to do that thing on a regular basis. The beauty of the human brain is that it will begin to make the change once you start to actually do the work.
Where is your hour?
As you are working to change something in your life or business, make sure to put in the time to make the change. Do that thing every day for an hour because when you put in the time you will get better. What is one thing that you have wanted to improve in your life or your business? Try doing that thing every day for one hour. After 6 months you will be better!
Trust the process
We all have a process that we have created to run our lives. The process is not the result, rather the process is the continuous practice of doing what you are trying to achieve. So, if you are not getting the results you are looking for, think about your process. Does it need to change? What is your process? I am constantly tweaking my process to improve my life as needed. Iterate as you go to change your process to meet your goals
“The magic is there is no magic. Start where you are and don’t stop” — Seth Godin
