A nice post from Warren Whitlock on a tweet he got this morning:
I was thinking about the world social and especially what it means in social media.. preparing for my presentation at Increasing Sales With Social Media coming up tomorrow in San Diego.
Is this play or work?
You may have heard me say “If you can tell the difference between work and play, you aren’t doing one of them right” .. but people in stage 1 or 2 keep telling me that they are looking for:
- How do I make more money with social media?
- Does Twitter get me more customers?
- What’s the ROI on using Twitter?
Then I tell them a couple of stories about people making money with their social media connections, doing business faster and why meaningful connections will make their work more like play and play profitable.
I thought I really knew this stuff.
Then I get this tweet:
I have to admit that my immediate reaction when I read the post was “What a lot of nonsense! I have real work to do”
I’m literally sitting next to my front door, should be on my way to the airport.. and I’m reading a blog about playing tag?
He get it. Work is play, play is work. Life is FUN!
Thanks for the reminder Mike
So here I am, not worried about being late for my flight.. playing tag on my blog.
Tag.. Your it?
Then leave a comment here to let me know your thought on the difference between work and play.
