LLG: Today I learned the importance of personal branding.  One thing I’ve been thinking about is the way I express myself professionally.  I think I’ve used my work position to define who I was and now that I don’t have an official position, I can’t seem to describe who I am in an elevator speech.  I seem to have lost key words I’ve used for myself and for what I can do for others.  I started back on the health goals again.  We’ll see how I can keep up with it.  Listened to Dr. Oz’s live broadcast through the National Society of Leadership & Success website yesterday and learned that he is one funny guy.  I enjoyed his presentation a lot.  He touched on mental and physical health, education, arts, science, and the importance of empathy.  He also mentioned that it’s not about time management but about energy management.  It reminded me of a quote that says “People make time for who they want to make time for.  People text and reply to people they want to talk to.  Never believe anyone who says they’ve been too busy, if they wanted to be around you, they would.” If you set a goal to accomplish something, it’s not really about managing your time but about managing your energy.  You know you’ll get everything on the list – at least I know, but depending on the task at hand, I’ll put less energy into one thing and more on another.  I also learned today that people do read these posts.  I’ve always thought my posts were never real until someone responds to them, but I’ve realized that’s not the case.  These posts are quite real, and even if no one comments or responds to them through verbal or written comments, it doesn’t make the posts less valid.  [For those reading and want to share your two cents, please do, because I love creating dialogue.]
