5 Ways to Use the Internet to Become an Expert in Everything

Aug 29

The internet is a beautiful thing. We can connect with friends and family from all over the world and more importantly, education is easier to come by with virtual classrooms and online learning. These days, we can literally become an expert, or at least very knowledgeable, in anything we set our minds to. With the help of Wikipedia, almost anyone can tell you who ruled London in the 12th century and how to make the best apple turnover imaginable. We are a lucky generation to have so much knowledge available at our fingertips that we can go from a bartender to a wine connoisseur overnight.

Here are 5 ways to use the internet to become an expert in everything.

Become a travel expert- With sites like Groupon and Orbitz, you can travel the globe on a fixed income and impress all your friends at your next book party meeting. And if you plan on taking this journey via car or truck, don’t worry, there’s even a coupon for that!

Learn more about things that interest people. Seriously, look at what’s trending and read up on it. You will not only gain some smarts, but also be able to hold a fun and relevant conversation at your next party or event.

Try new things. Basically, just try new things. Think of something unique and then just do it.

Use the internet for more than social media. Seriously, the internet existed before social media, so there are actually other things you can do with it! Read a book online or watch a documentary film on Genghis Khan.

Ask a friend. I know I said there is more to the internet than social media, but you can always use social media to pick your colleagues brains. Join a group on LinkedIn about the history of Constantinople or find friends in your area who are into Jiu-Jitsu via the Facebook fan page. Regardless of what you are into, there is someone else who is, too.

Keep in mind that while you become an expert, try not to become a know-it-all. There is a thin line many people walk when it comes to knowing something and thinking you know something.
