A Communication Gap
This controversial subject is one that we've been wanting to touch base on for quite some time. Do you ever notice that the majority of people are far more interested in texting and online networking? In many ways, Todd and I have to remind ourselves that too much is...simply too much. It happens in this world of increased technology, and of great importance to create our own limitations.
While technology continues to provide it's remarkable benefits, a vast amount of marketing advantages, and brings purpose to family far away...there are disadvantages that create a sociable gap. This gap extends into our children and grandchildren in many formats; such as too many video games, TV Shows, and even cell phones at at early age. Even some restaurants have electronic devices at the tables and require cell phone paging to be seated.
Ultimately, we are missing out on the sociable aspects of face to face communication with one another, our children, and within business marketing. There is no replacement for showing up in person, a phone call, and to disconnect momentarily. Both have endless benefits that make the difference between "Social Media vs. Sociable." When you give an equal balance to both, it's amazing how quick that communication gap closes.
"Rather than counting the number of likes, count the memories in your life, because at the end of the day, that’s all that matters."
"What Will Your Primary Form Of Communication Be?"
We want to hear from you! Yes, you! How did this blog post inspire you to become more sociable within the social media we are surrounded with daily? We encourage you to share your thoughts and experiences below!

The Art of Balancing
Many talented people like yourself, are endlessly searching for a successful balance between time and talents. Let's face it, we all wish there was more time in a day to get everything done. Right? We know, first hand, how important it is to manage both. So, let's explore four methods to juggle the time you have and continue to develop your expressive talents.
1. Concentration: Because we are often preoccupied with the time devoted in many other areas of life, we may face challenges in getting ideas out, connecting the thought patterns, and utilizing full creativity. Focus on one thing at a time. One way to do this, is write a daily agenda in both life and talents. This creates a basis and layout for each day. Breathe and focus on your breathing. You will be amazed what creativity and concentration can come from being in a relaxed state of mind.
2. Say "no" to others and yourself...when needed! Decide what activities, projects, and tasks have the greatest purpose to you. Prioritize time and talents based on your current life necessities; such as family and work. Ask yourself, "What can be left undone or delegated to a different day and time?" This allows you to organize your priorities within all you do on a daily basis.
3. Define your own balance. Do what works for you and your lifestyle. However, take time to rejuvenate yourself through doing other things outside of life's hectic schedule and talents. Doing so, will bring you fresh ideas and new insight on creating the time management you're seeking.
4. Erase perfection and set obtainable goals. There's no perfect time management chart for any one individual. Be yourself and develop an agenda that works for you, your family, and your talents.
Through these four methods, you'll soon discover your own art of balancing time and talents.
"Balance, peace, and joy are the fruit of a successful life. It starts with recognizing your talents and finding ways to serve others by using them." Thomas Kinkade
