One “must” for this week
"Promoting yourself vs promoting your ideas". A clip from the conversation between Adam Grant and Jay Shetty.
Promoting yourself is saying “look at me look at how great I am. I’m special”
Idea promotion is to say “I made something I’m proud of. I hope it’s valuable to you”
Self-promotion focuses on showcasing oneself and seeking personal recognition, while idea promotion centers around sharing valuable creations and hoping to benefit others.
