Episode 007 – The Minute Bucket Theory of Times
(Note: This document contains the essential content of this episode but is not a complete verbatim transcript. It may also contain bonus content not included in the episode.)
And it takes exactly one minute for each bucket to pass by you.
The buckets are minutes.
Or things that don’t matter to anyone, and won’t be remembered by anyone?
Each of your buckets deserves to be filled with something good, something worthwhile, something that will somehow, in some small way, leave something or someone better than before that little bucket passed your way.
"Our job is to make change. Our job is to connect to people, to interact with them in a way that leaves them better than we found them; more able to get where they’d like to go. Every time we waste that opportunity, every page or sentence that doesn’t do enough to advance the cause is waste."
~ Seth Godin
Take the magic moments that you have been given and go change something today.
The old marketing was about monologues - businesses talking to you or, worse yet, at you.
It was called advertising.
The new marketing is about dialogues - you and businesses talking with each other, and customers and clients of those businesses talking with each other.
It's called relationships.
If you can understand and internalize the idea that business is now based on relationships, and not on convincing, persuading and manipulating, you’ll be on the right track.

Think for yourself. If you don’t think for yourself, then other people will do your thinking for you, and that’s not a good thing.
Read books. Read blogs. Watch videos. Watch TED Talks. Listen to podcasts. Learn something new every single day. Never stop learning. You cannot foretell when a piece of knowledge will become useful to you.
Create something -- something good -- something that wasn't there before and would never have been there if you hadn't shown up.
Think - Learn - Create
Be Brave - Be Bold
