Do you experience frustration at the amount of electronic information you need to process daily? 5. Do you sit at your computer for longer than 30 minutes at a time without getting up to take a break? 6. Do you constantly check (even in the bathroom on your mobile phone) your email, Twitter or other online service? 7. Is the only time you're off line is when you are sleeping? 8. Do you feel that you often cannot concentrate? 9. Do you get anxious if you are offline for more than a few hours? 10.Do you find yourself easily distracted by online resources that allow you to avoid other, pending work? A few quick assessment questions Add up your score: # of YES answers
What does it mean to
manage your attention while your curate or other social media tasks? • Understand your goals and priorities and ask yourself at regular intervals whether your current activity serves your higher priority. • Notice when your attention has wandered, and then gently bringing it back to focus on your highest priority • Sometimes in order to learn or deepen relationships -- exploring from link to link is permissible – and important. Don’t make attention training so rigid that it destroys flow. Source: Howard Rheingold NetSmart
