Hi, I'm Deidre. In my posts, I talk about my voyage down the road of self-employment as a web copywriter, my achievements and roadblocks along the way, and what I’m learning as I go (with Marketing Mentor as my guide).
How much time, exactly, am I wasting on Facebook?
I ask this because I had an incredibly productive week—yet I was pretty much working half days. But since I had work to finish, within a shorter time period, I was avoiding everything else I usually do on the computer.
All week, I kept feeling like I was forgetting something.
What was I forgetting? My work was definitely done. Where was this feeling of “missing something” coming from?
I think I was missing the influx of unnecessary information I usually fill my head with during a normal day.
I had been ignoring the twitch. Do you know which one I’m talking about?
The twitch that takes you away from work to check Facebook, look for a new eggplant parmesan recipe, see if those shoes went on sale yet, or see what Kim Kardashian ate for breakfast? It tells you to check your bank account –again. Find a video on YouTube. Read a restaurant review. Find things to buy on Etsy! Check your email, for the 57th time today…
Was the twitch filling up the other half of my day?
I feel like an explorer who has just uncovered a new world. A world where there might actually be plenty of time! Could it be?
The only way to find out: Keep ignoring the twitch.
And start checking Facebook – once –a –day.
Can I do it? It’s this week’s experiment. Wanna join me?
