    @Bekka Prdeaux,well written post and a great advice. Media planning is concerned with the long-term course of your business journey and the idea you want to stick in prospects mind.The longer-term planning will also set the direction and tone of your content short-term plans.The alternative to media planning is a statement of pious intentions or optimistic death wishes that count only on luck.Your brand has a feeling that has to be revealed with a proposition you are going to show your customers who you are ,and the more they know about you ,the more they want to have a relationship with you.

    Beneficial basics! As the prevailing times depict that even a simple one time event or small start up business demands the attention of general masses. Imagine when majority of them are hooked up on social media platforms, then you have to make an initiative to go online through effective campaigns and targeted messages. You simply can't wait years to get your business established and after successful outcomes decide to have your entity's online presence. Perhaps, we have to go in parallel pathways for best results. :)

    This is a very good post, @Bekka Prideaux, and you bring up important questions. We are led to believe that presence is critical on social media, but it never justifies the time, only that we have to do it. I enjoy certainly exchanges—certainly here on beBee—but to monetize this is a different story altogether. Trying to serve many masters (which is what social media expects) is difficult and we're all dealing with time constraints. I also have NEVER seen the numbers YouTube or Facebook brag about, even though I've used both consistently.

    I asked myself this question this week. Since my latest contract started I have been driving to work in the dark, with few on the road. Since I use mainly back roads to get there it can be pretty dark. But now the alternative; I'm will be driving home in the dark with a lot of other cars on the road. I'm a morning person, love the light in the morning, but considering some of the crazy drivers I encounter, I'm thinking; maybe this year I would rather not drive home in the dark. :-) Too bad we can't customize the sun to each person's wishes :-)

    I was a night owl some years ago, but I feel much better since 4 years or so when I realized that I was much more productive in the early morning hours when I am fresh than at the end of the day when I am quite tired. I really enjoy getting up really early, sometimes earlier in my free days than in working days. It works for me, and it does not mean it is this way in all cases.
    Concerning to the DST thing, I am sure that if experts can come with numbers to demonstrate the energy savings, better productivity, and health, it is very likely going to be like they say. In the case of Spain, some time ago @Javier beBee wrote a buzz about what we do in Spain with it, which is completely wrong since the times of Franco and his German mate, because we should be in time with greenwich and not one hour later like Germany or Italy. So we miss the benefits of the DST thing, but oh, we are european (or they say so)

    Thought provoking article and very topical. Here in North Wales, UK by the time the clocks "fall back" it's dark when I get up at 6am regardless of the change and it's really only those few weeks each side of the summer solstice that it's still light when I go to bed. Whilst I do miss the daylight generally during the winter months, the clock changes seem to make little difference to me, I just run round the house changing the ones that don't do it themselves and try to carry on like nothing's happened wondering why I'm hungry earlier than usual for a day or 2. The one thing I would change is having a little message on my phone that says "Yes, your clock has been adjusted to BST (or GMT) " to save that split second panic when I wonder "has it? hasn't it?" and rush downstairs to turn on the TV just to check.

    @David B. Grinberg liked your article in a general scope, but do not agree with the summer time, it's only to save energy, but do not believe anything anyone talk about energy, after what happened to Tesla, in my country, power wires are placed in towers, my brother is an electrical engineer, working on a major international power company, the only reason not to put the wires on the floor out, what would generate major savings for the company and for the people, the answer? many earn tuition fee with the purchase of material, as soon as a system that generates maintenance is not feasible, I am building a small power generator by means of magnetism, if you can, never pay for energy in my life!

    @David B. Grinberg- great buzz and I agree with it and your previous comment. I share same views as symbolized by my buzz titled :Is Time Fractal? This means the spacetime is one unit and time alone without reference to the space is a reductionist approach. Shared

    #8 @Chas Wyatt Thanks for your valuable comments. I agree with your astute observation that, "Our measurement of time is abstract and illusional..." -- that's a great point to explore further. This is particularly relevant when considering "time" from the vantage point of cosmic time and Einstein's space-time continuum, in which both space and time are one unit forming the fabric of the universe. But perhaps that's for another blog post. I recall reading about a primitive culture somewhere that doesn't even believe in time, much less act upon it. I think the bottom line is that time is relative depending on the person making the observation and considering the larger context. cc: @Ali Anani @Milos Djukic @Aurorasa Sima 🐝 @Irene Hackett @Flávio Rodrigues Vieira

    Ken Boddie
    30/10/2016 #28 Ken Boddie
    Not sure, Javier, that a wind-back of the clock will necessarily result in the changes you are wishing for. I have worked in many countries and under many time zones and have been subjected to 'daylight savings' (moving the clock forward in summer and backward in winter), or not, as the case may be at the time. People get used to having to rise in time for getting to work, whether that means waking before daylight or after, and similarly get used to going home while it is still daylight or in the dark. For indoor workers I believe it has little impact, since most work in false light and many work without windows nearby. The main affect appears to be on farmers who have to work to the sun-oriented clock of their animals, assuming they are in a paddock and not in an indoor batch arrangement.

    I believe that one of the main impacts on production is when your time zone differs by one or two hours from another region, country or state, when there is reliance on lengthy daily interaction between your base and the other time zone location. But when there is an extreme difference in time zones between interacting locations (say 12 hours), then work can be passed between locations and virtually kept rolling forward on a 24 hour basis, i.e. when one location finishes work, the other starts, thus resulting in double the efficiency over a period of weeks and months.

    Efficiency depends primarily upon doing the optimum amount of work within the hours available and in practicing good task and time management. After all, how much interaction, on a daily basis, do Spanish businesses have with companies in Portugal, UK and Ireland, compared to Germany?

    Yes, that is one of the most bizarre decisions ever made by a national leader. Look on the bright side, Javier.

    What if Franco aligned Spanish clocks with Japan?!!

    I am not one to mess with another country's decisions. I even stayed out of the "Man who Wears Dead Squirrel on Head" vs "Evil Devil Lady" discussions. No one can possibly be as bad or as good as their followers and detractors say. I'll leave it to the American people to decide.

    Plan your week. Weekly organizing gives you the freedom and the flexibility to handle unanticipated events, to shift appointments if you need to, to savor relationships and interactions with others, and to deeply enjoy spontaneous experiences.

    #17 I totally understand, Dawn. I recently went to a talk about habits and one of the best takeaways was to be compassionate with yourself! Do what you can. Small steps.

    We all struggle at various times. I've heard of it described like a waves - many highs and many lows. It will get better!

    You might also check out The Miracle Morning (https://www.bebee.com/group/themiraclemorning) hive's articles. The idea there is to make more time, first thing in the morning, and do as many of the following as possible: silence/meditation, affirmations, visualizations, exercise, reading and journaling.

    I am definitely in need of trying this out for myself. Or parts of it. I want to slowly start and try all of this but, I feel I need to start slow I have not been focusing in the right areas of my life for some time. I actually put a story of my own up today but it doesn't show how stressed I am or how I feel I am floating right now. Thank you for pointing me in this direction.

    I am going to have to wade into this slowly, everytime I make long term "happiness" goals - they explode, so I only plan my life one year, one country, one little war at a time. I am looking for more than the next ginned up war and countryside genocide for gratitude, but it is consistently the only thing people pay me for, dead bodies ~ nearly my only viable commody or skill.

    #12 You were right @Renée Cormier this was a great read. Thanks for th buzz @Jared🐝 Wiese... I particularly like the Magic Rule of Three; I'm a big believer in this when it comes to setting "objectives"... set three, no more, no less.

    Hello all,

    I felt my article needed to evolve a bit more, so I added the following:
    - more on on Benjamin Franklin's routines
    - a section on The Magic and Value of Questions (Goldsmith)
    - how to get the Goldsmith's 32 questions (see Want All 32 Questions?!)
    - why the 32 might help (although, like you, I'm thinking it is probably overkill ;)
    - WHY each of the questions is important (see Here are the morning questions and their reasoning) - especially the Gratitude one
    - an Example Template with brief prompts
    - a little more on motivation from the likes of Robbins and Oprah
    - A lot more on Making the Routine a Habit

    Enjoy! Now, GO make this a habit :)

    #10 Oh Boy, DO I :)

    See page 12 of http://sourcesofinsight.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/GettingStartedWithGettingResults.pdf:
    ' Do This Now …
    Ask yourself, the following question:
    “What are three wins I want today?”
    … and write your answers down on paper.
    Simply by taking this action step, you’re doing Getting Results
    the Agile Way. '

    See http://sourcesofinsight.com/7-questions-to-start-your-day/.

    Please check out The Miracle Morning book and hive for inspiration on everything you just mentioned, "not an early riser by nature so waking up a little bit earlier to write, exercise, mediate, etc...is a bit hard for me to maintain".

    #8 I haven't but need to! I've only done morning journaling via The Artist's Way, but slowly quit after a month. I'm not an early riser by nature so waking up a little bit earlier to write, exercise, mediate, etc...is a bit hard for me to maintain. Any tips?

    Welcome to beBee Nissar. I welcome you also as someone who has served District 60 Toastmasters and while you are more focused on career and productivity issues, what I find interesting is your degree in Bachelor of Technology/ Engineering, Material Science - and as you also operate as a sales executive in the area of the Cloud, I can't think of a more well rounded individual that I have come across at beBee . I look forward to your future buzzes Nissar.
