What Makes You Unique?

One of the cooler things about Portugal is the fact they use tile on their buildings. Why this hasn't caught on in other countries is a mystery.

Seeing tile designs in buildings throughout Portugal got me thinking. What is it about you or what you do that makes you unique? You don't have to wear tiles on your clothing, of course, but think about it — what makes you stand out?

I'll share something personal.

Most of my best stuff happens when I'm not thinking. I just do something and good things happen. I once wrote a post that got 150,000 page views. It was about flossing my teeth and I wrote it in 20 minutes!

I see way too many people overthinking things. Don't do that. Just go out there and do stuff, even if it's not your "best". You never know what'll happen as a result.

Maybe, one day, you'll stumble upon something that'll make you as unique as tile buildings in Portugal. Perhaps you'll start a trend that's so well know the entire country will follow in your footsteps.

But none of that is going to happen if you don't get out there and do something.

What're you waiting for? Permission?

You now have my permission.

What'll you do with it?
