Social media may be robbing you of your profits. Seriously, how much time do you spend checking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.? You probably click on them without even thinking.
Try this: remove all social media links from your desktop, task bar and bookmarks toolbar. You’ve made it too easy for these sites to steal your time, which is money. The latest research shows we go to them almost subconsciously, just to see what’s going on. It’s your gateway drug, eating away at your bottom line.
Try checking social media only twice a day — for example, once at lunchtime and once during your afternoon break — and set an alarm. It’s easy to get sucked in.
