• Don’t be a lazy communicator. Texting and emailing are convenient, but they don’t have the impact that a live conversation does. Every now and then, pick up the phone or speak to colleagues face to face.
• Don’t become a workaholic. It’s OK to block out times to check and respond to emails and messages and then turn your phone off in between.
• Use social media wisely. Your current employer and potential future employers can see what you’re doing, even if your settings are private. Keep it professional and don’t post anything unbecoming.
• Put time limits on each task. Its easy to get engrossed on the Internet and social media. Before you know it you have wasted hours each day.
