The hard sale

Seth Godin:

If I invite you to a wedding, or a party, or to buy a $500,000 TV ad for $500, there’s no resistance on your part. Either you jump at the chance and say yes, or you have a conflict and say no. It’s not my job to help you overcome your fear of commitment, to help you see the ultimate value and most of all, to work with you as you persuade yourself and others to do something that might just work.
