Cool your jets! Hold your horses! Hang on a minute!

We always said we didn’t want to just blog for blogging’s sake. We wanted to make sure we didn’t waste your time reading a post unless we had something to say. Obviously, we also wanted to make sure that whatever we said was relevant to our wheelhouse – Social Commerce.

Well, over the past week or so, we haven’t really seen anything interesting happening and so we felt compelled to shut up…until now!

You see, within 24 hours we got emails of blog posts from two of the smartest blokes going around – Seth Godin & Mark Suster.

Both posts essentially supported the same notion that we’ve been thinking a lot about lately.

That notion…

or

  •  you can’t sell tomorrow to people who want to buy today (to paraphrase Godin’s post)

Of course, then you have the Henry Ford perspective which famously contends…

“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.”

Steve Jobs was always a firm believer in this philosophy too.

So, if you reckon you have the intuitive genius of Steve Jobs or Henry Ford, go right ahead and build the future today – right now.

BUT…we’d recommend you give some thought to the wisdom of Seth Godin & Mark Suster, lest you find yourself being just a bit too early and end up having to sell tomorrow to a market that is only interested in today.
