Event booster

Why should you attend more events?

Socializing does not come naturally to many individuals. In this day and age of social media there isn’t too much of humane communication as there is virtual communication over the internet. But another upside is that the internet can give you information about your surroundings as well as the latest happenings along with incisive event information that can help your make and build more contact with newer people and experiences.
But then again there comes a question of how you know whether the event you wish to attend will fun, interactive, helpful or even meaning full for you.
Here are a few ways you can find out about why and how to know whether the particular event is good for you or not.

Becoming more social

Live events force you to break out of your comfort zone. It’s easy to read a blog post from the privacy of your own office. You won’t break a sweat listening to a podcast. You don’t have to make small talk while your YouTube video loads up.
While there are those among us who are born networkers, for many of us live events and other people can be a challenge. But breaking out of our comfort zones is just the type of action we need to take to break out of old ways of thinking that have got us in a rut in our businesses.

Finding like-minded people

There’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people. There are people who are willing to take time away from the office to learn something new. Other people who want to “better” themselves.
When you sit in a classroom or auditorium, you discover that you’re not alone in wanting to improve your skills and bring something back to your office or organization.
That energy is lacking in all online learning channels, regardless of how much chatter there may be around a hash tag.

Comfort Zones

For many people, live events are away out of their comfort zone. For many reasons, they do not feel comfortable in networking and having conversations with strangers. But as you should know, if you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness.
If for only one reason you should join a live event or conference is to move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new. You will get inspired by others and more motivated to accelerate your activities.

Self-Investment

Perhaps this one is self-evident. But leaving the office and “sharpening the saw” is investing in you. It’s admitting that you’re worth it. It’s admitting that you still have things to learn. That you can get better. It’s an investment in yourself, your career, and even your company. When you purchase that event ticket and when you walk up to the registration desk, you’re saying that you’re investing in your own growth.
