If you want success, you need to stay committed. (Bottom-line)
Here are my 3 workout goals
- Building Lean Content
- Doing Interval Training
- Taking a Break
- Monitor Results
- Change Up Your Routine
Building Lean Content
For me, lean content is focused content that other people are not talking about. I have to stay focused. On the Midwest Labs Blog, I try to focus on topics surrounding lab analysis. These topics could include posts regarding Agriculture, Science, Health and Nutrition. By keeping this focus, I am able to connect with a specific audience. I do not talk about social media on this site.
Also, on this site, I try to give you a perspective of what works and does not work from a Marketing Director’s standpoint with respect to marketing and social media. Each day, I know if I have succeeded or not succeeded in accomplishing this goal and I watch it very closely.
Doing Interval Training
For me, I am on social media and then I am off. I may be on for a little bit by listening and reading other posts or engaging with others with my personal brand or company brand, see yesterday’s post. I don’t have time to be on all day on Twitter or Linkedin. I have other responsiblitiaties. However, when I am on, I am on. For me, I have found this approach to be most effective in managing my time spent on social media sites.
Taking a Break
Believe it or not, you do not have to post everything that happens in your personal or professional life to be successful. You can also take weekend time off. It’s very healthy. If you go a day without going online, you are not going to miss out. If you have a day of meetings, that is ok, its a part of business. Taking breaks is really the healthy approach to using social media.
Just like someone who works out and checks their weight, people should also monitor their efficiency. Google Analytics is an awesome tool for monitoring results.
Change Up Your Routine
Don’t do the same thing everyday. Find something that works for you and stick with it. If something is not working, change it. You have to find a routine that works for you that gets you results.
This is my workout routine! How does yours look? I am guessing there are a number of similarities.
