How to get attention without being outrageous.

Being outrageous or controversial has been a shortcut for getting attention for some time. Show me a person doing that, and I’ll show you a person who needs to think harder. In the social media age that we live in, it seems like if you don’t behave that way, you won’t even be noticed.

I disagree. Patience is a virtue.

Anyway, Tim Urban, the writer at “Wait, but why?” created this simple image and it caught my attention. There isn’t anything controversial politically here at all. I’m just serving up this as an example. We need more people like Tim. The outrage is getting old, but we could all use something a bit more interesting.

Thanks for setting the example Tim.
