Today I met an extraordinary person with decades of fascinating experiences because he discovered me on the internet. He was in town for a business trip from across the country, had recently learned about my work and my interests, and wanted to explore ways we could possibly collaborate.
The connection couldn’t have happened had I not created something interesting — with a lot of help from others — and exposed it to the world. Because I did, someone outstanding found me.
You can’t achieve anything impactful on your own. You need other people to join you. One way is to actively search for those people. Another way is to make it easy for them to find you.
