We developed this social media and digital distractions self-assessment as a tool to help great digital marketers and social sales people stay healthy and productive. Used properly social media tools can significantly improve your ability to sell, lead and communicate. The challenge is many of us are slowly moving from healthy social networking to social notworking! Too many digital distractions can impact our ability to concentrate, complete tasks and maintain healthy relationships.
On the extreme side social media abuse and overuse can lead to amplifying and worsening Narcissistic Personality Disorder, lead to lack of intimacy and anxiety disorders. We don’t have to go that far to have social media lose it’s luster. Sometimes we are not even willing to admit that we have lost touch of the goal. Social media is “social” it’s about building real relationships and improving efficiency through collaboration and community. If you feel you may have “gone too far” this little assessment may help you take the first step in getting back to a balance and healthy use of digital tools.
