Are you famous?

Seth Godin writes:  Everyone is famous to 1,500 people.

Some people are even famous to 3,000.

And that’s a fascinating new phenomenon. When there are 3,000 or 10,000 or 500,000 people who think you’re famous…it changes things.

The race to be slightly famous is on, and it’s being fueled by the social and tribal connections permitted by the net. We give a lot of credit and faith to the famous, but now there are a lot more of them. Over time, once everyone is famous, that will fade, but right now, the trust and benefit of the doubt we accord the famous is quite valuable.

As a pastor and church staff member… you’re famous.  It might be to 50 people or 10,000.

It really doesn’t matter.

Those people know you.  And because of your position, most of them trust you.

That’s a heavy thing when you think about it.

Think about it.

How do you feel about famous people?  You need to know, because you are one of them!



How does this thinking change the way you go about your day?
