I don’t want to knock social media; I use it a lot and it’s great for staying connected and reaching lots of people. It’s a great tool but it has its limitations when working to stand out and create a connection at an emotional level.
When everyone is aiming to be ‘significant’ it can detract from being memorable and having an emotional impact.
Here are 4 kick-ass ways to be memorable every day, with or without social media…
- Listen deeply. Listen like you’re a video camera. Be the best listener in that person’s life.
- Look people in the eye and smile.
- Take your time and reach out to them. Real connection doesn’t happen on a post.
- Look at what everyone else is doing and have the courage to do something different.
