How Do You Become Interesting?

You cannot be uninteresting–and be a leader.  An expert, perhaps.  A leader, no.  How do you become interesting?  Follow the morsels of life that are meaningful to you–your own interests–and reach people through your own engagement:

  • How history was written versus what really happened
  • Unique family stories
  • Lines from your favorite authors
  • Lyrics from your favorite singer
  • Historical notes
  • Mysterious events
  • Theater of real life

Here’s one of my favorite quotes:   “…you can free yourself from clouds of automatic verbiage, from “uninterestingness.”  When you get the hang of it, you will work at expressing yourself freely, pulled toward it in fascination.” – Brenda Ueland
