Do you put off today what you can do tomorrow?

I’m talking about procrastination. Yes, you know that word! It sends shivers up spines and causes many recurring nightmares of missing homework and running like a chicken without its head down a long high school hallway, or worse. Agh!

We all suffer from procrastination at every age. I can remember back to my childhood having projects due for school and waiting until the last minute. Then I would get stressed out and hand in something that could have been better, despite my mother’s warnings. Today, I see it in my own children. I even fall victim on occasion. However, being responsible for many different blogs I can’t let procrastination get the best of me. So, I have set a goal to show my family (and myself) how to avoid becoming the “procrastinator”.

I’m not that crafty and, sadly must admit, I let the picture books and archiving of my second child fall by the wayside. Now there are no more excuses. Facebook will capture all the fun pictures we’ve taken, stories and experiences we’ve shared, and places we’ve gone all on one page! The most I may have to do is click a star next to the event.

Do you have a Corporate Social Media Policy?

Many of us are using social media in our day-to-day lives. Yes, even during work hours.  Many small business owners don’t see a potential problem with social media use and leave it to the employees to practice “good judgment” and use common sense. The idea that someone would post inappropriate statements, photos, or comments, for example is not of great concern. Plus, you don’t want to micro-manage your team. What good does that do?
