Small Talk and Networking section at Howto.Lifehack

Small Talk and Networking section at Howto.Lifehack

We have some more materials online at howto.lifehack.org -there are two more sections, Small Talk and Networking available. Those two pages are pretty handy if you are going to functions and conference where you need to talk to people. In Small Talk section, we have examples of icebreakers you could ask to open up the conversation. Networking page has some good tips on increasing your people network. Tips like:

* Use business cards. Make some of your own if you’re not networking on behalf of your employer. Clever doesn’t get you calls back. Being memorable and having a business card gets you calls.

* Be genuine. Never network just to collect cards and add names. That’s another whole model, but it’s not one that I’ll support. Be who you are.

* Think bigger than you imagine. Talk with people about things that you’re planning to do as if they’re already half done, but only if you’re pretty sure you can deliver.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
