Ok raise your hand if you have ever opened Facebook or Instagram to do what was supposed to be just a quick little thing… and 20 or 30 minutes… or A WHOLE HOUR has gone by?
Time you had planned to use productively has VANISHED and you can’t get it back! Your schedule is off now, and you have to start sacrificing important things you had planned to do. Now you feel stressed, you did have a plan.… at least until the moment you got sidetracked on social media and it all went down the drain.
Can you relate to any of this? If you can, you’re not alone, so don’t beat yourself up about time lost – just use it better going forward.
In today’s episode, we’re talking about how to balance social media at work. I’m going to share with you my best tips on how to take control, and make the most out of the time you spend on social media and avoid wasting time!
Here are four tips I listed to help you balance social media at work:
Plan your posts out ahead of time. Keep the topics of your posts on topic – your brand and who you are talking to.
Set a timer for 30 minutes to create a post and put it on Facebook and Instagram. This mindset will keep you from going down rabbit holes and it creates accountability.
Resist the temptation to look at your news feed. Not only is it a waste of time, it takes the wind out of your sails when you start comparing yourself to others!
Know when to quit. If you can’t concentrate even when you’re trying hard, don’t try to force it. Come back to it later and it will probably be a lot easier to finish and a better product.
Everybody only gets 24 hours, and you get to choose how to spend it. So, take the stuff we talked about today and use that to help you balance your time on social media at work. Spend your 24 hours wisely!
