Happy 2016 everyone! With the New Year come new resolutions to better myself spiritually and professionally! Below are 13 pieces of the best advice I’ve found from prominent business, marketing, social media and life leaders that will help you make the most of the year to come!
1 – Tell Your Story
Nobody cares about you, but tell them your story anyway. They won’t listen, but at least you’ll get to hear yourself talk.
2 – Live Authentically
If you don’t own any authentically made goods, buy some.
3 – Have Something To Say
What do you really stand for? What separates you from all the other clickbait bloggers? How meaningful are your clicks? This isn’t advice, but serious questions for you to really think about.
4 – Always Keep A Notebook Handy
Then hide your phone in that notebook. That way, people will think your spending all your time going over deep thoughts instead of stealing content ideas from Instagram.
5 – “Inspiration” Is For Wimps
So find someone who’s inspired and take their lunch money.
6 – Reimagine Your Content
Because whatever you’re putting on the internet, it’s shit. It’s all shit. Including this.
7 – Make Up Your Own Wordypoos
Whoever said a fitzroy couldn’t waddlestack didn’t phlank a gingerboom.
8 – Have A Strategy For Your Everyday Life
How do you craft a strategy for a day in your typical life? At the end of each day, go over everything that happened to you. Then, write a strategy you can retrofit to what you did so it seems like you did it on purpose.
9 – Be Accountable. Unless It Was Your Fault.
People – especially bosses – love it when you own up to things. So don’t be afraid to take credit for something that happened, unless it was that sizeable mistake you made last Tuesday.
10 – Answer A Question With A Question
If you give an answer, someone might listen to you and that could come back to haunt you.
11 – Believe In Something Bigger Than Yourself
Like money. A big pile of money.
12 – Think Like Mark Zuckerberg
After he sleeps with a girl, he probably points to his penis and says to her, “You and 12 others like this.” Try doing that.
13 – There Is No Vaccine For Virality
Contagious content is king. So keep your poison vaccines away from my content. Please share this.
