A big part of success is about showing up. Showing up to work, at the meetup, the conference or anywhere you promised to be. Showing up means that you are invested, committed and want it more than anybody else.
Once you show up, you take it from there. It’s your opportunity to showcase your charisma, knowledge and drive. Many of us have all the tools we need now-laptops, wifi-information/knowledge all in our fingertips. There’s no shortage of that. Now its far more important that ever to show up, meet and connect with people.
