Every new project (or career or relationship) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point - really hard, really not fun. At this point you might be in a Dip, which will get better if you keep pushing, or a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better no matter how hard you try. The hard part is knowing the difference and acting on it. According to marketing guru and best-selling author Seth Godin, what sets successful entrepreneurs (and pop stars and weight lifters and car salesmen) apart from everyone else is their ability to give up on Cul-de-Sacs while staying motivated in Dips. Winners quit fast, quit often and quit without guilt - until they commit to beating the right Dip for the right reasons. You'll never be number one at anything without picking your shots very carefully. The Dip is a short, entertaining book that helps you do just that. It will forever alter the way you think about success. Business.… (més)

Obvious advice that's easier said than done. ( )
  SarahMac314 | Aug 12, 2022 |
Good career advice
Horrendous life advice

The entire book talks about how you must focus on one thing, one single thing.
This is not bad advice but he went on to say that if you are not better than the 99% in a thing you must either focus on that thing or abandon it, hobbies included, he went on to say that you have to organize when you will abandon a task and if you will.
This is horrendous advice.
We humans are very bad at making previsions, how do you know if you like piano if you never play it? How do you know that you don't like snowboarding if you have only take a few lessons? Maybe there are certain things that you like at beginners level but not on competitive.
But let say that you know that you will like a thing and you will become better than the 99% of people in that thing, there is another problem, just like our body needs varied food in order to remain healthy a healthy mind needs varied sources in order to stay healthy, this is because our brain like to experiment and connect ideas and sources trying to produce something, so having a large number of resources make so your brain has more to connect.

This book gives some good career advice like "even if it is a high paying, high position job, a dead-end is still a dead-end if you want to advance you need to find another job"

And if this was all that the book had to offer I will give it a good 4 star, but there is another problem, this book is too long, people on reviews were not joking when they say that you could read the essence of the book in their review! Why he diluted his book so much I don't know, because of this i will give this book a 3-star rating.

Feels like a lot of conjecture and a whiff of snake oil. How do you know beforehand what to quit? Godin says you can know that with certainty but I'm no fortune teller.
There's nothing here to identify if you're at a cliff, in a cul-de-sac, or in a dip you should quit. Good luck figuring that out.
To summarise the entire book, some things you should quit and others you should persevere with. Save your time and money, read something else. ( )

There are cliffs, cul-de-sacs, and dips. Identify what you're up against. If it's a dip, work through it and you'll hit success. If it's a cul-de-sac, quit. If it's a cliff, quit before catastrophe. That's the sum of the book. Nothing terribly grandiose. ( )
