The old adage is true: birds of the same feather do flock together. If you want to be around more interesting people, then you will want to be more interesting yourself. In this episode of the Noob School podcast, our host John gives us eight things anybody can do out of the gate to be more interesting. Spoiler alert: it’s all about doing something you’ve never done before!


  • No need to be 'the greatest', just be 'pretty good'
  • Learn a second language
  • Play an instrument
  • See more places
  • Get in shape
  • Volunteer for a nonprofit
  • Take a course
  • Read (or listen to) a book
  • Learn to cook different cuisines


John on why you want to be more interesting: "The more life experience [and] skill stack you have, the more interesting you're gonna be, the more people want to be around you. You're gonna attract more interesting people in your life."

John on exercise and living healthier: "Just get in great shape. And I don't mean Olympic shape. I'm not gonna get in Olympic shape either. But just, wherever your body is supposed to be, get in that shape. Take the time to do it and it will make all parts of your life more interesting. You'll be more able to make some of these things happen."

John on why you want to read more: "What is the one common characteristic of the world's most successful people, as measured by financial success? You know, Jeff Bezos, Gates, Buffet, those kinds of people. They read all the time."
