Social networks – they don’t always necessarily cost your job, but definitely a lot of time. We are active on the net and chat, write, post, read, inform, comment, like, tweet, pin and whatever else there is. And in addition to contacts, creativity, and a certain desire to communicate you definitely need sufficient time in order to manage and maintain all your presences on the web.
For some of us time is a scarce resource and, therefore, precious. The best solution would be time management, because time is one of the few resources that cannot be recovered. Thus, you should also establish a strategy for your network activities to sort tasks by importance and urgency so that networking won’t become a time trap and you won’t get bogged down in all those different networks and profiles.
How can you keep having fun with networking despite limited time?
For example, know how to limit your daily time for networking and be brief – true to the motto that sometimes less is more. Or deactivate your chat. Dedicate most of your networking time to people who are particularly important to you, because a good network can be worth its weight in gold both for the career and for the private sector.
