Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Participate wisely in social media, part of Time Management Tips Weekly.
- Social media is a powerful tool.…It can help you grow your career,…it can help you reconnect with long-lost friends,…it has a tremendous impact on your focus,…and focus is the name of the game…when it comes to effective time management.…So we want to use social media carefully…and find balance in our life.…I'm going to share with you a few tips…to get the most out of social media…but not be distracted by it.…Number one is understand the purpose for which you're there.…

Number two is schedule time…for yourself to use these sites.…Rather than constantly jumping in and out…
