I am not sure to stand out in what field you are asking about. Do you wanna stand out in your career or in the society? There's one good Mantra to stand out in your career
Be the best at what you do, and do it in time
Improve your skills, be dedicated, whatever job is assigned to you, make sure you do it in time and you are the best at it. When you are best at anything, you will be in the spotlight.
If you want to stand out in the society then build applications, products that are helpful for the society, get patent.
