The Old American Dream vs The New American Dream by Seth Godin

Do you remember the old American Dream? It struck a chord with millions of people (in the United States and in the rest of the world, too). Here’s how it goes:

Keep your head down

Follow instructions

Show up on time

Work hard

Suck it up

. . . you will be rewarded. As we’ve seen, that dream is over. The new American Dream, though, the one that markets around the world are embracing as fast as they can, is this:

Be remarkable

Be generous

Create art Make judgment calls

Connect people and ideas . . .

and we have no choice but to reward you.

What the boss really wants is an artist, someone who changes everything, someone who makes dreams come true. What the boss really wants is someone who can see the reality of today and describe a better tomorrow. What the boss really wants is a linchpin.
