How To Be an Attention-Getter, Everytime, Everywhere
We're drowning in a sea of things that are clamoring for our attention.
Blogs, wikipedia, Digg, Newsvine, FOX News, ESPN, Google News, RSS, email, Tivo, iPod, Flickr, YouTube, etc.
Plus, the real world: family, significant others, kids, friends, co-workers, bosses, vendors, conference friends, etc.
But your attention is limited.
What speaks to you? What cuts through the clutter?
Same as it always was: good stories.
So, who tells good stories?
Is it corporations?
Or is it people?
(Hint: it ain't corporations.)
As attention grows scarce, your ability to tell a story and cut through the noise is more important than ever.
The good thing is, right now, it's easier than ever to tell a story. And if you tell a good story, people will listen.
Telling a story well will make you famous. And fame brings attention. And attention gets you chicks, or dudes, or whatever your thing is. Lather, rinse, repeat.
So tell a story. Be funny, be scary, be sexy. The important thing is: be entertaining.
(Maybe try dancing?)
