• Avoid criticism, complaints, and negative topics. Even if not everything is good in your life, start a conversation that brings you pleasure and will bring the same to your listeners.
  • Your behavior should demonstrate your confidence: don't slouch, don't fumble with any objects or body parts, try to smile more often, look into your interlocutor's eyes, and avoid closed postures.
  • Many people believe that the ability to make almost every story interesting is a talent. But it's not always the case. Mostly it's a skill that can be learned. Just speak with confidence. Use humor, especially self-irony.

Tricks To Attract All People Around You

There are people who radiate such inexplicable magnetism that absolutely everyone reaches to them. They wish to be like them, to win their friendship or approval. And what's most curious is that it doesn't depend at all on these people's appearance.

  • When talking to someone, always look into their eyes. Sometimes one piercing look can tell more than a thousand words. Eye contact shows that you're listening and you understand and accept them as person

STOP SAYING THANK YOU.

Yes. Remove that word from your vocabulary, it is absolutely as worthless as the word absolutely.

Gratitude is an act that is meant to show appreciation. When done correctly, it will leave a person with something to smile about for the rest of their day. However, “thank you” simply doesn’t do that.

what does have that impact is specific gratitude.

Drivers drops you off

“Thank you.”

vs.

”Thanks for driving me, I don’t know how I would have gotten here without you.”

TAKEAWAY: The more specific you are, the more apparent it is you are actually grateful.

It’s simple and it makes life more pleasant.

Improving your idea-flow

A lower idea-flow is this sense that you don't have as many ideas as you used to. Reading more encourages ideas to flow.

You can't create time, you can only re-allocate it. To find the time for improving your idea-flow means that you have to find ways to cut back on other things.

How about being flexible in choosing work hours aa per your productive time?

There are people who are active in morning & then there are peeps who get work done at evening hours. Creative people get to choose their hours but not a scenario in corporate lives. So here's the thought-

  • Select your working hours for the day ensuring that your meetings are aligned with the schedule
  • Plan your priority work & other tasks so that you don't delay work due to someone's non availability
  • Pick your independent tasks in your scheduled slot & unwind your mind from work by indulging in new stuff :)
