My, How Time Flies – Social Media and Time Management

The other day, I got so involved on Twitter that before I knew it hours had literally flown by. It’s so easy to get caught up in the agendas, dramas, and comedies of so many fascinating people every time we log on. TMI, too much information, confronts us all in today’s increasingly busy, digital world. It’s impossible to read everyone’s posts!

I’ve resolved to be a good steward of my time engaged in social media. Time is a precious gift we have all been given. We should manage it wisely. Psalm 24:1 reminds me of my stewardship responsibility as it relates to the area of time management.

How can we  manage our social media time more effectively?  Network, blog, and tweet with a purpose. Interact with your network(s) strategically, not haphazardly. Some people use social media to market products or services. Others to entertain. Some to find love. And still others  out of sheer boredom, or just for fun. What is your purpose for engaging social media? If you don’t have one, I would highly recommend that you define one, asap. Otherwise, you can find yourself wasting valuable time that you can never get back.

Establish a goal for your engagement in social media. Stay focused like a laser beam on that goal. Find your purpose. Use social media to help to unlock your unlimited potential, not to squander it.

“The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” Psalm 24:1

You were born for greatness. There’s no limit to what you can do through Christ Jesus. 

God Bless,

Kenneth Lillard
