Organized, but not by FaceBook


Some day I’ve just GOT to get organized. Social networking is so much fun that hours just fly right past and I have not called current customers just to reach out and touch. Suddenly I realize I’m not connecting in real time with real people. Follow-up phone calls? I suddenly remembered at 3:00 pm. I just joined a gym—and missed my weekly workout. Real-world networking mixer at 4:00 pm, it’s now 3:30 pm and I’m in my jeans. Did I remember to pick up my spring jacket from the dry cleaner?  Ouch!

Does the rest of my team know where I am today from Noon to 2:00 pm? With a potential client? Not if I have not put that meeting on my schedule and enabled my team to see my schedule.

Oh, yes. My social networking sites will remind me of Barry’s birthday. I’ll read Terri’s tweet about her new narcissus nursery. But I’ve simply got to get organized. Maybe my scheduler will actually remind to get a card for Barry three days before his birthday, take it to the committee meeting we both are supposed to attend and give it to him. Oh, yeah. That’s his birthday party I’m attending…
