Don’t listen to “Everyone”

The priceless Seth Godin has written a very wise post about “everyone.”  He can’t stand this person, who really isn’t a person.  It’s the rhetorical strategy people use to claim they have the answer – the only answer.  “Everyone” says.  Really?

I sometimes hear this from clients.  Everyone says you should have a one page resume (or an objective or no objective).  My response is to ask who told them this gem of wisdom.  They can’t say.  Everyone is really a nobody.  Don’t take his advice.

Take Seth Godin’s advice and read his blogFollow this link to read the post on the nowhere man (or woman).
