The No. 1 #mistake in #selfpromotion is not what you might imagine
It’s not sounding arrogant - although given the 714,000 Google search results on the topic that’s a big concern.
It’s that we imagine that our results should speak for themselves.
Yet we live in a world that’s increasingly busy, where distraction is everywhere and people are the protagonist in their own movie - so others won’t always naturally see or remember your results unless you remind them.
And because we believe that results should speak for themselves, we then think there is something wrong with us and our achievements when no-one notices, or even remembers.
It’s a bit like getting upset when no-one remembers your birthday - but you didn’t even tell anyone when it was.
And that’s ridiculous.
The best bit? When we use real examples with real stories and real impact and outcomes, that helps you avoid sounding arrogant anyway, plus helps align others with your vision.
