The Unique Hidden Joys and Benefits of Sharing

Sharing can create a domino effect of goodness, Let me explain.

Many people want to share their knowledge via a tweet, a LinkedIn post, a conversation, or a blog. But they don’t.

Why not?

They fear the audience already knows what they have to say. “It’s nothing special.” is the refrain.

Remember, your audience isn’t you. Your experiences, learning, and background are unique. The knowledge you are withholding could be the very thing they are seeking.

I ask Balesh, a successful consultant, for his views. Balesh tells me his clients value his contributions. While they know their product, his experience allows them to scale. It’s a win-win.

Some readers will go, “Yeah, yeah,” and move on to their next task. Some of you will feel encouraged to begin sharing; this post is for you.

Start today! And keep sharing for 30 days. The right audience will find you eventually; your job is just to keep sharing.

The thirty days will help you build your writing muscle and show you topics you like that resonate with your audience. it will also give you a clue regarding your audience. Who are they? Are they novices or experts? Do they like your content or the way you present stuff? What more do they need?

As you clue into these questions, you’ll become more aware of yourself, of your interests. And of course, it will win you some new friends. New friends inevitably will lead to new thoughts. You can meet the right mentors, and the mentees who need your advice will find you.

Sharing therefore opens a window into oneself and expands our social connections at the same time. And that makes it most special for all of us.

Would you agree?
