Make Yourself Interesting

Go exploring.
Explore ideas, places, and opinions. The inside of the echo chamber is where all the boring people hang out.

Share what you discover.
And be generous when you do this. Not everybody went exploring with you. Let them live vicariously through your adventures.

Do something, anything.
Dance. Talk. Build. Network. Play. Help. Create. It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you’re doing it. Sitting around and complaining is not an acceptable form of “something”, in case you were wondering.

Embrace your innate weirdness.
No one is normal. Everyone has quirks and insights unique to themselves. Don’t hide these things – they are what make you interesting.

Have a cause.
If you don’t give a damn about anything, no one will give a damn about you. It is better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.

Minimize the swagger.
Egos get in the way of ideas. If your arrogance is more obvious than your expertise, you are someone other people avoid.

Give it a shot.
Try it out. Play around with a new idea. Do something strange. If you never leave your comfort zone, you won’t grow. There is a saying, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll still land among the stars.”

Hop off the bandwagon.
If everyone else is doing it, you’re already late to the party. Do your own thing, and others will hop onto the spiffy wagon you built yourself. Besides, it’s more fun to drive than it is to get pulled around.

Grow a pair.
Bravery is needed to have contrary opinions and to take unexpected paths. Ignore the scolds as they resent you for your adventures.
