    #1 Exactly @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman The whole part of Social Media is to have engagement. If you are not planning your strategy in the same way, how can you affectively get what you are looking for. Secondly, you don't have to be on ALL of them. Pick the top 2 or 3 that have your niche customers on and focus on those.

    There are so many social media platforms out there, it's difficult to select what will work best for one's needs. Setting up a strategy is a plus so valuable time is not wasted. Your post is very timely and I feel research can be very beneficial so as not to be bogged down with too many sites that don't serve the purpose.

    Great article. It is a worldwide tendency to recrimination by age, worse when there are certain outdated concepts in thinking that all professionals above a certain age are lazy or resistant in developing new learning or tasks.

    Here in Brazil happens the same problem, that is, until the age of 25 you are too young and inexperienced, after the age of 40 you are considered too old to have good job opportunities.

    I have a company and most of my employees are in the age ranges listed in the job market, but contrary to what most HR experts say, I have a very productive team and everyone, both young and old, interact very much good.

    #11 Hi Jared,

    Thanks for the kind welcome message and sharing my posts in so many hives. Being a newbee, I didn’t even know that some of them existed. I’ll be checking them all out.

    I’ve just had a look at Twilight and I wish I came across it before, as I would have tested it and mentioned it in my article.

    I think sleep is a work in progress for most of us :)

    A huge thank you again for taking the time to read my article and for sharing it.

    Hi Karan,

    Great first post on beBee. Welcome!
    First things first, for welcomes, I'm sharing in the beBee Interviews and Introductions hive.

    I love life hacks! There's even a hive for that. Lots of great tips here...

    For posture, I'm sharing to the Egoscue Method hive. I often get back pain from sitting at a desk all day. You might check it out. Covers the exercise and HIIT aspects to, hopefully.

    For "me-me" time, have you heard of the Miracle Morning? Sharing there too. Gratitude and reflection are so key. Dang, could share in the Tony Robbins hive too!

    I'm still working on sleep. But the blue light helps. f.lux seems similar to an app I've been using called Twilight.

    Great stuff! Sorry for the delay. Thank you for sharing all this!

    #3 Hi @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, it does take a deliberate daily effort to do non-business related things that make a difference to my health. I can only imagine the challenges that your husband faces managing his IT Consulting Company.

    It’s great news that he can take holidays more often. A break can do wonders for recharging the batteries. Thank goodness for remote working and competent employees :). Yay, to him exercising at his home office! Please let me know how he gets on using f.lux.

    #2 Hi Gerald, yes, finding our optimal posture is necessary, especially when working long hours. As for Jacob, sleeping on a rock pillow sounds very uncomfortable indeed :)

    Hi @Deb 🐝 Helfrich you’re so right about the ease that bad habits can be created. I must admit that I worked from my bed or sofa when I started freelancing. I think I was slightly rebelling against anything desk-related, as I spent years sitting in an office :).

    Neck strain was a sure-fire sign that I needed to change my ways.

    Like you, I now have a simple set-up (a desk and chair) that is much more ergonomic. So yes, good posture is absolutely a big part in keeping ourselves well when working from home.

    Great tips @Karan Johnson. I think it's cool that you recognized what is important and works for you in order to be highly functional without getting ill or having a break down! Because my husband runs his own IT Consulting Co. he doesn't have a choice many times with regards to determining good times to not be on his PC. I will have to relate to him about f.lux you wrote of above, that may help him when he has to be online late at night. He used to take small vacations every 2-3 years but now he can go and not worry because he can work remotely if an issue comes up and he's trained his employees to do much more than they were doing when hired. He related to me he's been taking breaks in his office and doing exercises (his home office, that is). Thanks for this!

    #1 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich If I understand what you are saying; I am an agreement..."practicing" optimal static and dynamic posture/movement through spacetime is so very vital for the ultimate ride of a lifetime; and it doesn't require any special "functional furniture"...Jacob hurt his his leg after climbing a ladder to heaven and getting ina scuffle with an angel/velvet rope bouncer.
    All because instead of sleeping flat on the ground, he felt he had to rest his head on a "rock pillow"...a most unnatural sleeping position for proper oxygenation and avoiding disruptive episodes of apnea.
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    20/01/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    Wellness while freelancing is crucial, @Karan Johnson, because it can be so easy to work in an unstructured manner and create bad habits.

    Posture is a big thing to pay attention to, and it can be easy to use regular relaxing furniture with all our smart devices, but I know I am more focused and productive when I practice structural integrity while working. I have a completely bespoke set-up that almost guarantees good posture.

    It is a bunch of random bits of furniture, but they are all at the appropriate heights to enable me to not force myself into strange contortionist positions. That is a very crucial aspect of wellness while working from home.

    #2 I agree with your 10 attributes - Creativity, Social Intelligence and Global Knowledge were identified by IBM as the 3 top 3 capabilities by 2020. These are different capabilities that require being with uncertainty, not knowing, seeing new patterns emerging in complexity. The old style Consultant, had known knowledge they shared with someone who didn't have access to that knowledge. The new Consultant is a co-creator and a collaborative problem solver who works with the present state and what emerges.

    #9 Irene, I agree, as well, that we are in the midst of a growing transition away from the historical model of long-term, full-time employment toward one of limited-term contractual employment. However, I think it a mistake to conflate the situation in respect of upper-level execs cast out of FT employment with that of middle and lower level people joining the ranks of unemployed. Highly paid top level execs often have the option of joining the ranks of business owners and entrepreneurs (not the same thing, BTW) whereas middle and lower level people will be seeking to reinvent themselves as consultants and contract workers. I submit that it is important to recognize and understand the differences and nuances. ( https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/tips-for-successful-consulting ) Thank you, Irene for expanding this important conversation. And thank you, Ron for initiating the discussion. Cheers!

    You touch on an important topic here, and in so doing will hopefully encourage further conversation. I am somewhat confused to your reference to now as 2015. Perhaps a typo? And I do not see how the "FTEs" of whom you speak are going to transition to being instantiatins of your recommended model, which really amounts to being entrepreneurs with top executive authority and responsibility, including the provision of what you call "angel investment".

    I personally believe that the major transition will be from FTE to limited term contract employee -- which is not the same as being a consultant. Thank you for opening an important conversation. Cheers!

    I would say that the biggest change that has happened over the last fifty years is information float. From days or even months, information is now nearly instantaneous. This will pressure your "5th should". I would think that any leader seeking coaching, consulting or input from an outside source is probably wrestling with information overload. Your points give focus to an otherwise difficult process. I would say though that these points would work internally as leaders work through change management in their own organizations. Great insights, @Ron Goddard.
