Delegate or allocate separate time for your social media work.

Even a few minutes of social media activity can severely damage the output of an individual. Atlantic Media tried to quantify their losses due to such distractions, and they found that they were spending $1 million per year to pay employees to write emails. You’ll increase your productivity greatly if you delegate or allocate separate time for social media work.


  1. Write down all the social media tasks you have.
    Go through your social media work activities, and write down the different tasks you do.
  2. Delegate them or allocate separate time for them.
    Assign these tasks to someone else or allocate a time slot for them. Try to do them later in the day, because the first few hours should be spent on high-intensity, creative work. Social media tasks (such as replying to emails) are usually simple and do not require much energy.
