Are You Social Media Connected or Burned Out? An ironic #SaturdayMorningHustle today. Let's talk about how much content we all (you and I) are taking in every day via the internet, email, smartphone apps, social media, video, podcast, blogs and "traditional" mediums like print, TV (network or cable) and radio. How much is enough to make you feel connected and how much is too much – making you want to turn it all off and go back to bed? Are you happy with your daily intake or burned out? ⠀ ⠀ To be honest, I'm burned out. The second half of the conversation is about your own mental health. How do YOU (yes you!) manage all these options? What techniques, attitudes or even technology do you use to make sure you can be social online without feeling overwhelmed? Do you have set rules in your home or office, physically move or even hide devices, etc….? ⠀ ⠀ Let's talk about it. Comment below (the irony is not lost on this) and tell me how you feel and how you manage it all. ⠀ ⠀ For more detailed thoughts about what works for me and why it's important, check out todays podcast on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay on @anchor.fm https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding and streaming on @spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle. ⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle. ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard. ⠀ ⠀ The Saturday Morning Hustle t-shirts are now available for everyone at http://bit.ly/SMHshirt so get yours today. Prove your hustle and grind. https://saturdaymorninghustle.com/⠀ ⠀ #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation #SaturdayMorning #Entrepreneur #SocialMedia #IRL #Success #StartUpLife #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #Motivation #Career #Advice #Inspiration #Motivation #Opportunity

It's a #SaturdayMorningHustle idea so simple but so powerful and true. People appreciate positive reinforcement. Who doesn't love a compliment, big or small? Think about how you feel when some tells you something nice. Small things count too. Like on your social media post, positive comments, and people going out of their way to make a specific comment about how they like what you're doing. So if all this is true, why don't we all do more of it? Too often we use social media, phone apps, digital platforms and networking events to be negative, complain and not lift others up because we don't want the competition. For me, when I get positive comments online and #IRL about the Saturday Morning Hustle podcast, my business podcast (The Golding Group #NeoMarketing Podcast) and other activity it really lifts my spirits. The smallest act of kindness can do great things for people, so LET'S ALL DO MORE OF THAT! It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation #SaturdayMorning #Entrepreneur #SocialMedia #IRL #Success #StartUpLife #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #Motivation #Career #Advice #Inspiration #Motivation #Opportunity The Saturday Morning Hustle t-shirts are now available for everyone at http://bit.ly/SMHshirt so get yours today.

It’s a very different #SaturdayMorningHustle this week. We’re spending our Saturday at the @project3810 office but not working. Instead, we’re collaborating with a local producer @tssnstudios on the “Yes! Science!” Live event and video recording. “Yes! Science!” is a show featuring women and minority individuals who work in STEM with interviews and cool science experiments. We’re providing coffee and donuts this week to make sure everyone has enough energy. How fun is that! Get out there and find ways to collaborate in your community and motivate others to do the same. See you next week. #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMorning #Entrepreneur #STEM #Success #Grind #Hustle #Collaboration #Community #Leadership #Motivation #Career #Advice #Inspiration #Opportunity #Coffee #Donuts ☕️🍩

No, we're not on a new diet for the #SaturdayMorningHustle but instead reminding you (while reminding myself) that we all need to take the advice and guidance we give to others as direction for ourselves. There's nothing like a less-than-happy conversation with a client to make you feel really stupid for expecting discipline and structure from them (of your making or theirs) but not yourself as well. Trust me, I'm speaking from very recent experience. This is called "eating your own dog food" or "taking your own medicine" or "walking it like you talk it" – you get the message, right? Too many people in business and other pursuits fear rules or structure because they don't want to be constrained or held back by a business plan or marketing strategy. Of course, this is misguided. The plan create structure with room to adapt so you can be creative or make different decisions on the fly when adaptation is needed. That's how it's (supposed to be) designed to work best. Everyone needs to be working towards the same goals, via different objectives and tactics while remembering the big picture. Anything "held back" by a good plan probably deserves to be skipped. So, what is one way (or more) you can do more of what you say or eat your own dog food better after this gentle reminder? How will you be better at following the rules you set in order to reach success in a better way? Best of luck! See you next week. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the Saturday Morning Hustle. #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard Subscribe to the podcast on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay on @anchor https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding and streaming on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle.

The #SaturdayMorningHustle simple truth is there is no simple, singular path to success – big or small. Most of the time something (or everything) fails to work out as planned. BUT, that's not an excuse to skip the plan and jump in without a strategy in place. That's even worse. ⠀ ⠀ The key to success is making a plan, developed via a strategic process with goals, objectives, tactics, tools, assets and measurement that can adapt as needed. Because you will need to make changes along the way. ⠀ ⠀ The better prepared you are to change with circumstances, the more likely you will be in achieving your ultimate success. Let's talk about it! ⠀ ⠀ https://saturdaymorninghustle.com/⠀ ⠀ Listen the full 5 min.
