“I feel a very unusual sensation. If it is not indigestion, I think it must be…” (Great Work quote)

“I feel a very unusual sensation.
If it is not indigestion,
I think it must be gratitude.”
~ Benjamin Disraeli

Gosh what a week it’s been. We’ve been working very hard to have the world notice Do More Great Work and I think we’ve had some small success with it. Hurrah!

And that’s in no small part due to the support we got from friends and colleagues, for which I’m most grateful. Or I have indigestion. But I think it’s gratitude.

With a sudden flash of understanding why they start playing music at the Oscars when thank you speeches go on too long, here’s an incomplete list of people who’ve helped along the way

iStock_000008722788XSmallSix lovely people who wrote origianl pieces for the book and helped promote it too: Seth Godin, Chris Guillebeau, Michael Port, Tim Hurson, Leo Babauta, Penelope Trunk and Dave and Wendy Ulrich.

Pam Slim and Jonathan Fields, who did video interviews with me which were awesome and Dan Schwabel who did an email interview with me.

Suzi Pomerantz, Tom Heck and Leo Babauta who hosted guest blog posts.

Andrea Lee, Jen Louden, Mark Silver, Coco Fossland, Viki Winterton, Michael Neill, Peggy McColl, Laura Berman Fortgang, Jamie Broughton, Sabrina Hasham, Michel Neray, Gail Goodwin, Kim George, Ernest Oriente and Chris Guillebeau who went as far as to put out a special note to their peeps about the book.

Michael Lee Stallard who went DMGW crazy (in a good way) and posted some lovely reviews.

Kind people who blogged, mentioned and reviewed such as Jason, Todd, Matthew, Jeanne, Liz, Laurie, Jeffrey, Patri, Dariane, KP, Denny, Suzi, Paul, @greatworkbooks and even one of my heroes Steven Pressfield.

A band of awesome Twitter-ites: @danielpink, @nancyduarte, @gtdguy, @rogervonoech, @missrogue, @ritahcrowe, @markdowds, @lifecoachmary, @charliegilkey, @marketingprofs, @kckatalyst, @chrisguillebeau, @michaelport, @matthewmay, @mollygordon, @JenLouden, @MarkHeartOfBiz, @unmarketing, @outboundliz, @krishnade, @pamslim, @jonathanfields, @reachbranding, @DrJohnMcGinn, @onboardingcoach, @shaboom, @milanaleshinsky, @sarahrobinson, @toddkashdan, @kevineikenberry, @truthplane, @remarkablogger @tracifenton, @reese, @chrisferdinandi, @inspiremetoday … and heck, I know I’ve forgotten more people than I’ve remembered. (And if you’re a twitter-ite too, DEFINITELY #FF these folk.)

And the many many MANY of you who bought the book.

You can see that getting a book noticed is the work of a crowd, not a single person and not a stroke of good luck. I’m very appreciative of what’s been done to help me and get the word out. Thank you.
