I’ve been on this kick this week in TE Live about the power of putting stuff down on paper and once you do, it becomes ‘real’. And once an idea is down on paper, action has been taken and the creation process has begun….Creepy stuff huh? I’m getting all deep today…
But I witnessed something remarkable yesterday on Facebook. About how ‘ideas’ are spread and when you create something that gets people talking, it gets shared very quickly.
I was reading one of those ‘graphic messages’ that seem to be popular these days. You know the powerful quotes that are placed on a small graphic. People seem to love these but I found one that was really unique on my friends wall. I then shared it (with the share button on Facebook which I think is the greatest thing ever btw) and not only did I get immediate comments from my friends and also got that same link shared 6 times….All within 15 minutes of me finding the link.
Was it earth shattering information? No, but it was unique. And it was something people wanted to talk about.
Here’s the lesson in this…Make whatever you do online MATTER! Make it unique. Make it newsworthy. And get people talking about it. What’s awesome is that you won’t have to do much work once the idea starts spreading. But the first step is to take what you have in your mind, and put it on paper….Then let the ‘social’ world take over.
Have a great Friday!
