1 Simple Thing Action:

Start reading the paper (all sections), content curators, blogs and anywhere else you can access to stay up to date on the latest conversation points. Then plan 3-5 items for conversation. When you have something specific to the day, time, or the local area you are in, you’re even more interesting. It’s 5 minutes of your time that prepares you to feel more comfortable.
