Social media should not be a treadmill

Some people I talk to get really excited when they hear about the possibilities of social media. Others groan. Not more work!

Does more information = more work? Yes. Can that be productive work? Yes!

You may see social media enthusiasts like ourselves creating, consuming and curating a lot of content, and feel like you have to do the same. This is my official permission to you to let you off the hook. You don’t have to live and breathe this stuff for it to be useful to you. But there is a lot of useful stuff out there.

Just as I’ve given you permission to not be online 24/7, maybe you need to give yourself permission to go online and just explore for half an hour, make connections and find something useful for you.
