1. Start a Blog
Speaking as someone who now has a blog but wasn’t originally interested in having one, it’s turned out to be a great creative outlet. I’m sure you have something interesting to say and a blog is the perfect place to share that information. It’s nice to share. A blog can be anything you want it to be: some people aggregate and post content created by others while some create their own content. Either way, it’s an engaging and rewarding exercise and it forces you to stay up to date on whatever you’re blogging about. Plus, it improves one’s writing skills, and who doesn’t need that?
2. Create a Twitter Account
Again, I originally had no interest. I didn’t care what famous-for-being-famous people had for breakfast. But I opened an account to promote my blog and then began following the industry leaders in my field. Now I’m more up to date on the latest happenings and trends. I’ve read so many interesting and useful articles that I never would have known existed had it not been for following my various Twitter contacts.
3. Put Away The Damn Phone
Resist the urge to fill every free moment of your life staring at that screen. The real world is a far more interesting place.
