Be Sincere
Whether you spend five seconds or five hours with a new contact or acquaintance, make the time count. In Los Angeles, where I live, eye darters are a party staple. Theyre constantly looking to and fro in an attempt to ferret out the most important person in the room. Frankly, its a disgusting habit, and one thats sure to put off those around you.
The surest way to become special in others eyes is to make them feel special. The correlate, of course, is equally true: Make people feel insignificant and your significance to them shall certainly diminish.
