Daily Task Checklist Inspired by "The Art of Procrastination" http://hbt.link/checklists NOT a #productivity book. This book won't help make you more productive but at least you'll understand why you procrastinate while getting a laugh at the same time.
People who are regularly bombarded with several streams of electronic information cannot pay attention, recall information, or switch from one job to another as well as those who complete one task at a time.
Conducted on over 600 small business owners via telephone interviews, the survey revealed that social media is, in some instances, helping SMBs fulfill some business goals. Of the seven most popular reasons to embrace social media, the top four were: connecting with customers (78%), marketing and promotion (72%), building online reputation (72%) and advertising (69%). From a personal standpoint, it’s so interesting to me that businesses are still focused less on marketing or promoting or advertising than they are listening – what a missed opportunity....
Creating a Productivity Journal has not only increased the amount of tasks I accomplish, it has also reduced my stress level while improving my creativity.

That, and the rapid growth of Snapchat, was enough to have commentators rattling off obituaries for the world’s largest social network – which continues to grow every day. Ello is the latest name on everyone’s cursor tips, the latest answer to the question of ‘what’s the future of social media?’ But is Ello the Facebook killer, as alleged, or is it another case of mistaken identity?
