Another link-worthy Godin article:

People have discovered that after hour 24, there are no more hours left. Suddenly, you can’t get ahead by outworking the other guy, because both of you are already working as hard as Newtonian physics will permit.

Along the same lines, Seth hits on the same idea I wrote about in my piece on Fanatics (which I published exactly a year ago today):

Anyone can get fans by simply showing up day after day and being genuine. But to get fanatics you have to do something long enough to create nostalgia. Or you have to do something crazy or wonderful enough to give your current fans something to get fanatical about.
