I used to think time travel would be awesome...until I read an 1883 etiquette book.
 
Life in the 1880s:
  • 17 drinks before breakfast.
  • Waiting for the automobile to be invented.
  • Some light assault of service people.
  • More drinking.
 
Grab your powdered wig, dust off your top hat, get in your horse and buggy and let’s learn some Victorian-era etiquette!

If you've ever wondered how to network with people, you're not alone.
 
When someone says "Networking" it makes me think of American Psycho where a bunch of yuppies sit around comparing business cards.
 
"MY GOD...IT EVEN HAS A WATERMARK."
 
Networking doesn't have to feel that way!
 
And in 2020, most networking is sending a DM or email.
 
But how can you get noticed (in a good way) and connect with people who could take your business or career to the next level?
 
In this episode, we'll cover 6 ways you can be better at networking. (I'll even break down a DM that got me on a Zoom call recently.)
 
Let's dive in!

Look, if you have a habit of people-pleasing, you probably get requests like ...
 
"Can you hop on this Zoom Meeting?"
 
"Hey, can you drive me to the Airport on Friday?"
 
"Hey, can you petsit my Egyptian Pharaoh Hound? He requires constant fanning with a palm leaf."
 
People pleasers tend to say "Yes!" too much. And it comes with a cost!
 
The more you say yes to others, the lest time and energy you have for yourself.
 
In this episode, I'll walk you through some tips to help you stop people-pleasing.

"Just fake it until you make it!"

This is popular advice-especially if you're trying to improve your people skills.

Should you fake it until you make it?

The more we take action and do something, the more our identity moves to align with the version of us that does that new thing.

Our thoughts FOLLOW our actions.

In this episode, I'll walk you through a couple of tips that will help you make it, (and not fake it.)

Should you care what other people think?

There’s a lot of advice floating around telling us to not care what other people think. (Sometimes in more...colorful language than that.)

I’ve never liked the concept of NGAF.

But the reality is, caring less about the outcome of any given social interaction can massively help your people skills.

In this episode, I’ll walk you through a couple of exercises that will help you declare “outcome independence” with some help from Tim Ferriss and the ancient Stoics.

Have you ever been talking to someone and it seems like they already know what they’re going to say, and they’re just waiting for you to stop talking so they can say what they want?

I call this the “spring-loaded response trap” and it signals to the other person that you’ve checked out of the conversation.

(Not a good look if you want to have better interactions with other people.)

Often, this happens because people lock on to something they KNOW they can respond to in conversation. And then they stop listening.

If you feel like you may be guilty of this…in this episode, we'll cover what you can do about it.

There's this jerk of a cognitive bias called the Spotlight Effect.

We tend to place more importance on ourselves in any given social situation. 

And we tend to overestimate the amount that other people notice us.

When it comes to improving our people skills, this isn't helpful.

Here's how to use it to your advantage!
