How Social Media is Destroying Productivity (Infographic)

How Social Media is
Destroying Productivity

So, you’ve just finished a task or an assignment and figure you deserve a little mental break. Why not check Facebook or Twitter? It will only take you five minutes, right? Wrong.

As American students and workers spend more time on the Internet and on social media sites in particular, their levels of productivity are tanking. The average college student might spend three hours checking their various social media sites, but only two hours studying. That discrepancy is reflected in lower GPAs. Workers aren’t faring much better, either. Every time someone at work gets an IM, a Facebook message or a tweet, it takes them a whopping 23 minutes to get back on task. Taken all together, that costs the American economy $650 billion per year in lost productivity. The next time you think about checking a social media site, consider how much time and energy it will actually take.

The VC Term Sheet Decoded : Managing :: AMEX

Are you about to launch into the search for funding?  Link to the  infographic from AMEX that gives you the basic VC term sheet information and what it means.

Excerpt:  Ready to raise capital? For many new businesses, this can mean approaching venture capitalists for startup funding. And if you’re lucky enough to get them interested, you will be introduced to a term sheet. The term sheet is, in the simplest terms, the contract between investors and companies raising capital. It includes stipulations on who owns how much of the company, the terms under which the investors will supply the capital you need, and who gets what when the company is either sold or taken public. Here we decode the most important parts of the VC term sheet with the help of Jason Mendelson, co-author of Venture Deals: Be Smarter Than Your Lawyer and Venture Capitalist. This is the first step to building a knowledge base to have your funding conversations end on a note where everyone feels they are a part of a fair business deal.

Read full infographic here via The VC Term Sheet Decoded : Managing :: American Express OPEN Forum.

I just had a potential client tell me they wanted to reorganize it all  …  or as she expressed it, “to put all the ducks in order”.   I like my “ducks in order” also.  I plan to spend some time this weekend to catch up here “putting my ducks in order” after a hectic week.

Everyone everywhere have a great weekend whether you are enjoying rest and relaxation or working a bit as I am.
