I like engaging on the internet much more than watching an evening of “must see TV” or making sure i catch the “10 Spot” on MTV. This annoyance at the 8 minutes of commercials for every 22 minutes of content has me questioning my activities on the internets. Am I spending my time online shuffling or learning or adding value to the community?
Chris Brogan’s post Where I Learn Even More, talks about getting back to the fundamentals as pointed out by Bill Rice. In getting back to the fundamentals he suggests doing what my sister just decided to do have a sense of urgency about any effort you make.
So to that end, I will outline my goals, objectives of my online activities so that I can measure my performance over time. Hopefully outlining these goals here will help me stay focused and urgent in producing results. I plan on revisiting this post every month or so to bounce my results against my goals and objectives.
Without further ado…
- Meet one new contact each week
- Write a post at least once a week
- Be involved in the local online community
- Teach at least 2 people the ins and outs of social media at work
- Improve my writing skills Learn to write better
- Improve my story telling abilities Learn to tell stories better
- Learn to teach/communicate concepts better
- Learn how to be more productive and relate social media to tasks at work
