“I do love brevity. I think the tiny bites matter. People don’t want a lot to consume, until they are ready.“ - Chris Brogan on audience attention
Diversifying Your Content Intake for Inspiration
Chris says one of his “secrets” to constant inspiration is his habit of taking in content outside of his industry. Chris of course happens to work a lot in the marketing space, the leadership arena and the world of business communication. But instead of consuming content from his contemporaries, Chris looks for a diverse stream of information for his inspiration.
“I don’t follow any [contemporaries]. I don’t read any of those people. I love them all. But they’re all talking about what I would talk about. I go read about things like what kindergarten is working on these days… what does that extrapolate on?” - Chris Brogan on finding inspiration
