Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 3/18/13

March 18, 2013—Issue #182

This week’s focus point: When “Chicken Soup for the Soul” became successful, I was besieged to contribute to a hundred derivative works by uncreative others: “Turkey Liver for the Spleen,” “Pickled Herring for the Hair.” These “authors” are the terminally derivative. They seek coattails and not creativity. Yet, objurgation is not my intent, for the rest of us stand out when so many are merely copying. What are you doing to make yourself singular? You won’t stand out with the ten-thousandth book on “team building,” but you will with the first book that says teamwork usually fails because most organizations use committees, not teams, and don’t realize the difference. Stop jumping on the bandwagon and start building your jet.
