The five following ideas are from Chris Brogan. If you are not a subscriber to his blog then shame on you. He is not a boomer, however, he has terrific ideas and insights to marketing and social marketing. You can subscribe to his blog here

I have five ideas for you this morning:

1.) Write down the three things you MUST move forward on today. Tape it to your monitor. Add it to a notepad file on your computer. Send a reminder to “” with the three things in the body of the email. (more about nudgemail – not a sponsor).

2.) Write down three things to STOP doing today. Do you really need to be subscribed and reading all those blogs? Which ones could you eliminate? Are there one or two TV shows you could stop watching today and replace with some work on your projects? Write down a few negative things to stop SAYING to yourself, too.

3.) Once you finish this email, hit compose, and send mail to someone you haven’t contacted lately that you value. Make the request/offer to connect with someone and work on a project with them in 2011.

4.) Have a nice glass of water. So few of us are drinking enough water. This one glass will help your body flush out bad stuff, push out some fat, and get your skin feeling a little more supple. All for free (well, depending on where you get your water).

5.) Go to your LinkedIn profile and double-check what the summary says about you. Is that what you want prospective business partners and colleagues to see? How could you make your LinkedIn profile work for you?

Just five simple things. In total, they’ll take under 10 minutes to do. Do you have 10 minutes to invest in yourself?

Two Ideas For The Afternoon

Boomer54 Mark note: The following ideas are my contribution and I work at executing them at least three times a week.

1.) This ties into #3 of Chris’s five…Do something for someone that they cannot possibly repay! Contact friend, business associate, or family member and ask this simple question:”What can I do today to help you?”

2.) This ties into #5 about using Linkedin. Here is the idea, I leaned from Seth Godin. Send a snail mail “thank you” card to your customers/clients and follow it with a Linkedin request. The “thank you” card alone will get their attention (think about how often you get them…usually never or maybe 1 a year).

In a year, if you do this three times a week you will have made 156 new connections and you will become one of the most well thought of and connected people in your industry.
