    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Try as I might, I find it impossible to remain focussed when there is so much to learn and so much to absorb.

    I know that I should focus. I know that I should set specific goals, but like much else in life, planning sometimes gets lost in action.

    Great points and great advice as usual.

    I love your posts! It is like taking a mid-term and passing it with flying colors! It is nice to know I am doing something right! ;-)

    Thanks Jeff, I think as well as having goals you need to know why you are doing it, as often it is part of a greater plan, and you can lose focus on that.

    Jeff,

    These are some great tips. Staying focused has definitely been an issue for me. I’m constantly brainstorming and coming up with new ideas and better ways to do something. However, I find myself suffering from information overload or a loss of focus.

    When I review these tips, I really can’t find one tip that’s more important than the others. You can’t apply five or six tips, only, and expect to accomplish great social media marketing results — it just won’t happen.

    I appreciate this very concise list of tips. I can apply them to other areas that need fixing, too.

    Jeff,

    great as usual! I’m grateful of your rising at 4.30am to provide these blogs!

    I find part of my ‘keeping focused’ routine is to fit in time to read (and sometimes re-read) some of your blogs. They are are a great help in re-aligning my thoughts and helping me to use social media effectively.

    thanks again

    This is SO timely, are you looking over my shoulder? Setting goals and a routine are critical and I use a kitchen timer to keep me on task. Works like a dream, as long as I listen to it, ha!

    Social Media is a gold mine when operated correctly, and a time sucker otherwise.

    EXPECT Success!

    Absolutely beautiful music in a room otherwise mostly full of white noise and millions of voices shouting.

    Good thing I read this before another 30 minutes disappeared, Jeff. I believe David Allen calls it ‘chasing butterflies’. Content often looks good, but can distract you from truly meaningful, profitable tasks.

    Wow! great tips Jeff! I’ve yet been consumed whole morning to this information overload until I read your article. You just pinched me to stay focused. Thanks buddy

    Great content! I fall into the “Sirens of Ulysses” trap all to often. One piece of advice I can’t help but share: Proofread. There are a few typos in your post. Would hate to see folks dis-credit due to something so avoidable.

    Great article! I believe it is very important to post alway fresh and relevant content on the Social Media platforms. Social is about building relationships and demonstrating thought leadership! 80% of the content firms share should be about others, not yourself. There’s a great tool that can help come up with that 80% of content that is not yours but is still specific to your niche.
    It’s called ZootRock.

    Excellent article. I find that far too often I hop onto Facebook to share a piece of content, and then hours just fly past. Browsing through friends pictures etc. Or, more often replying to friends comments on my pictures about the epic stuff I’m doing, that’s why I made my blog, to share that epic stuff, and inspire others to do it also and Facebook sometimes seems like the enemy of doing more epic stuff.
