As I get a little further through the book, I'll post a blog or two about social media, charity and marketing on Connection Cafe. However there are some topics in the book I find really interesting that aren't quite right for Connection Cafe. That's where this blog comes in.
From chapter three of Socialnomics, here's my fav quote at the moment
The [Gen Xers and Gen Yers] are also less likely to understand boundaries, whether that is answering an e-mail from a friend during business hours or taking e-mail from a manager at 11 p.m.You know what...true story.
I'd be a dirty liar if I told you I never sent a personal email or made a personal phone call from the office. But I also check in on things during my time off. I mean I am reading a work book on a Sunday afternoon am I not? (And actually, typing that reminded me that I needed to send a quick note to a client...so I just did.)
Anyways, the book says we know no boundaries. I admit to knowing few boundaries. Is it good, bad or neither? Will our work or personal lives suffer from lack of boundaries?
Many moons ago in my blog reading I stumbled upon one about work-life balance, in particular with kids. The blogger said that for her, mixing it all up was the key to success. She might take a long lunch to go to a personal appointment but then she'd check email at 10 p.
So that's my story, a boundary-lacking woman/marketing pro. What's your story?
