I wrote yesterday about the dilemma of giving it away for free.
Social media is an interesting medium. It's very easy to get drawn into, spend all your time tweeting or on facebook or linked in. Next thing you know the day is about done. I admire people like Chris Brogan who appear to be ON all the time.
The key word is Appear. Chris is one smart cookie. He has a plan. He can see light at the end of the tunnel. Part of his plan is helping others. It's a BIG part of his plan. He helps others for a reason. They ask for help. Keith Burtis does the same thing. Both of them learn so much from teaching! I'm beginning to see the benefits in helping in this medium. (see yesterdays comments from Keith, really eye opening.)
Yesterdays post was a sorting out of thoughts running in my head. I can look at it today and see just how I am NOT managing my time effectively. This month I'll be using some new tools to create a better working schedule for me. I'm also exploring the notion that I don't have to get everything done early. On time is fine.
I DO like answering questions, exploring options and running things up the flag pole to see how it flies.
Please call me, ask questions and lets figure some things out. I may ask you if we can continue the conversation on another day. I really like the idea of Fridays being my learning day. I am not going to charge you for having a conversation with me. That's just too silly, isn't it?
