How to Be Interesting
How to Be Interesting: (In 10 Simple Steps) | Jessica Hagy
13 posts | 4 read | 35 to read
You want to leave a mark, not a blemish. Be a hero, not a spectator. You want to be interesting. (Who doesnt?) But sometimes it takes a nudge, a wake-up call, an intervention!and a little help. This is where Jessica Hagy comes in. A writer and illustrator of great economy, charm, and insight, shes created How to Be Interesting, a uniquely inspirational how-to that combines fresh and pithy lessons with deceptively simple diagrams and charts. Ms. Hagy started on Forbes.com, where shes a weekly blogger, by creating a How to Be Interesting post that went viral, attracting 1.4 million viewers so far, with tens of thousands of them liking, linking, and tweeting the article. Now shes deeply explored the ideas that resonated with so many readers to create this small and quirky book with a large and universal message. Its a book about exploring: Talk to strangers. About taking chances: Expose yourself to ridicule, to risk, to wild ideas. About being childlike, not childish: Remember how amazing the world was before you learned to be cynical. About being open: Never take in the welcome mat. About breaking routine: Take daily vaca- tions . . . if only for a few minutes. About taking ownership: Whatever youre doing, enjoy it, embrace it, master it as well as you can. And about growing a pair: If youre not courageous, youre going to be hanging around the water cooler, talking about the guy that actually is.

Refreshing read. I was falling into this mundanity, but I feel a little relieved and revived post reading this. This book gives you this vital reality checkpoints and that was enough to lift me up for the day.

Do I really need this book? Would a NON-interesting person make an avocado banana smoothie while listening to fiddling tutorials on YouTube. Would they?!? (I‘m really asking, I haven‘t actually read it yet.)

lg724 Is there anyway you can resend my confirmation email for the A to Z challenge? I accidentally deleted it😐 @BookishMarginalia 6y
BookishMarginalia @lg724 unfortunately, there isn't. Google Forms generates it automatically with a unique personalized link to your info. I don't have a copy of it to resend. 6y
lg724 Would it be okay If I started a new one? I already know the books from the previous list I had started. I was just needing to edit it to add more books. @BookishMarginalia (edited) 6y
