Gets things done as an introvert

  • Write down ten ideas a day to keep being creative.
  • Read a lot to keep learning.
  • “Execution ideas” are a subset of ideas. When you have an idea you want to test, think of the next execution ideas to get the idea done.
  • Talk with friends who can help if you think the idea is starting to gain traction.

  • Focus your execution efforts on the things you're skilled at and hire or outsource the other things.

  • Work with people who are good at what they do, so you can be good at what you do.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Being an introvert
Being an introvert has nothing to do with being shy.

All it means is that some people recharge when they are by themselves (introverts).

  • Learn to recharge by yourself. You can be enormously creative and successful once you know how to recharge.
  • Create a life where you can have more time by yourself.
  • Make small incremental moves towards the life you want to live.
  • Ask yourself throughout the day: is this activity giving me energy or draining me? 
  • Be humble enough to realize what you are not good at. 
  • Self-esteem is great if you earn it. But if you have no gas in the car, faking your gas gauge won’t make the car run longer.

IDEAS

  • Prepare. Have questions ready to ask new people,such as “How did you get started in your career?" or “What are you passionate about?
  • Find a conference buddy to bring with to your next networking event.
  • Be that person. Many feel the same as you do. Forget about yourself and reach out.
  • Be present. Once you do start a conversation, ask lots of questions and practice your listening skills.
  • So try to relax, smile, and look as warm and casual as you can.
  • Challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone just a little bit.
  • Know your boundaries. Introverts are often not comfortable with uncertainty about when something will end. 
  • Control the setting. If going out is not easy, have people come to you.
  • Focus on activities, as a class at a local college or community center. Sometimes just being around people is enough.
  • Join a club based on your personal interests or hobbies.
  • Socialize from afar. Social media is another way for introverts to stay connected.
