Tuesday: Focus

“Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.” ~Greg Anderson

I’d like to add that it also matters HOW we focus our attention. Staying focused on the job hunt (or any work for that matter) amid all the distraction can actually be more difficult than it seems. For example, just this morning as I launched my browser to search for a quote regarding focus, and got sucked into Facebook instead… you get the point.

Social Media has changed the way many of us work, communicate, research, and play. It is the blurry line between wasting time and being productive that has caused much ado. But it’s not much ado about nothing.

STAY FOCUSSED on the job at hand, don’t get side tracked, set time aside for each task, including the task of applying social media, and stay on track. LinkedIn, Twitter, even Facebook, can all be very useful in your career campaign, but please use them appropriately. In job search, they should be just one tool on your tool belt and do not replace face-to-face interaction and networking! But that’s another post…
