While reading advice from Michael Hyatt on blogging
(in Anatomy of a Blog) he suggests “If you want to effectively market your social network, you should tweet 6-9 times a day.” It’s 5:30 p.m. and my count is still at zero. Time to get tweeting. And look what do I get:
So, instead of tweeting on Twitter, I think about what I do when life is Over Capacity. The list of three (no technology) activities, might free up a few minutes in your day:
Tip 1: Make enough oatmeal for breakfast to refrigerate the extra serving and have left over for the next day’s breakfast . (I also mix my brown sugar, nuts, dates in one container. I like lots of goodies on my oatmeal.) No fair cooking with “quick” oatmeal. Cook the good stuff.
Tip 2: Prepare a week of sandwiches. Add to your weekly grocery list a loaf of “healthy” bread, sliced cheese, sliced meat. Build the sandwich in this order: bread-cheese-meat-cheese-bread. Cut in half, place sandwiches back in the empty bread bag, seal, and FREEZE. Grab your sandwich in the morning with an apple and carrot sticks or added . Enjoy your thawed sandwich by lunch and it won’t be soggy! (add sauces and veggie fixin's to top your sandwich at lunch and enjoy.)
Tip 3:Buy your birthday, holiday, anniversary cards a month ahead so you can mail your greetings on time. My friends and family will appreciate the wisdom with this one. It’s a fine tip I read many years ago....not my idea. And unfortunately, it’s not a routine practice in my life.
