    #29 Thanks for the feedback, @Henri Galvão. I have been at least listing my top 3 tasks daily for months now, per Meier. It really does help.

    I've heard the hope thing, but found this interesting:
    http://survivalscoop.blogspot.com/2009/06/rule-of-3s-to-survive.html

    "3 SECONDS without hope
    Most individuals freeze in an emergency. In the immediate confusion and chaos, the human brain tries to draw upon some familiar experience for a plan of action. Finding none, we become immobile. You have three seconds to decide that you have hope and move forward. Statistics show that in a plane crash, you have 90 seconds to exit the wreckage. Three seconds without hope can make the difference between whether or not you have time to clear the area.

    Survival depends upon your ability to shake yourself out of the stupor of disbelief and hopelessness.

    Walter B. Cannon studied the case histories of sudden, unexplained deaths from around the world. In 1942, he published his theory that the brain unleashes stress hormones that can cause fatal heart arrhythmias in individuals that have given up all hope of escape -- they are literally scared to death. Use fear to spur yourself towards life-saving action. Determine to grasp onto hope and make a plan to live."

    This is a very elegant way to approach time management. It certainly makes one much more committed to his/her chosen actions.

    There's one thing I couldn't stop thinking about: what is the meaning of "3 months without hope"?

Thank 3 people, be grateful for 3 things, reach out to 3 new business prospects, give three hugs, kiss three people, go out of your way to help 3 people, read and comment on three blogs... the list is endless!

    John, technology -- and by extension, social media -- is a double edged sword. We either don't leverage it enough on one hand, or we can't get enough of it on the other hand. I agree that moderation is key. Sometimes, losing a wireless connection or your battery going dead on a smart device can indeed be a blessing in disguise. Nice buzz!

    @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.
