The Man Who Dares Waste One Hour Of Time Does Not Know The Value Of Time.—Charles Darwin

Who has the time?

Broadcasts – podcasts – bloggers – social media.

In the infancy of digital, media outlets required posts every day.

Start with the end-users’ time.

Let’s say you follow motivational speaker Darren Hardy.

And marketing genius Seth Godin.

And broadcast legend Fred Jacobs.

These brilliant minds blog every day requiring about 19 minutes of your time.

Perhaps more if you follow the ‘click through’ content.

Add your social – Facebook – Twitter – Snap Chat – Instagram – and more.

Which you check several times per day.

Also, those you may follow that publish periodically.

And that podcast you’re following?

Every day is like drinking from a digital fire hose.

If you’re a content provider (we all are  now) be purposeful about digital content.

All content.

If you have something to add, add it.

Time-wasters end up in the digital trash bin.

You will need purposeful intent – (does it add to their day?) – to ‘print’.

Anything less gets lost in the  fire hose.
