With all the focus on the diminishing attention and the general availability of time in my life, I spent some time itemizing what I do and throwing it into a spreadsheet, just to get an idea of how much time I’m investing in social media.
That sleep bar continues to shrink – can’t be good.
- Travel – Commute, Air travel
- Friends – Directly engaged and interacting in person
- Family – Engaged as a dad, husband, son, brother, uncle, cousin
- TV – Various – family overlay most of the time
- Sleep – dreaming, REM, tossing, turning
- Email – Personal – private, Personal – public, Spam, Work
- Social Media – Reading, writing, searching, thinking, posting
- Work – Thinking, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, speaking
- Meetings – Listening, learning, sharing, watching, talking
So I’m on the lookout for a new productivity tool for social media and this whole FriendFeed is a great candidate for my new social interface. Can’t imagine the time slice of social media Chris Brogan, Aaron Brazell or Erin Kotecki Vest have on their spreadsheets, I bet their sleep bar is considerably smaller than mine.

I’ve been trying out Friend Feed but so far it isn’t sticking with me.
On the other hand, I really didn’t get Twitter when I first tried it, either. 🙂
twitter took 3 or 4 months for sure, I use friendfeed as a quick look digest, not as a tool I actively interact with.
My sleep bar is smaller and I don’t watch TV. My family would be higher than my work, and my friends would be about equal with my travel.
Neat exercise. : )
WOW. Ok, now I”m wondering how my lines would change. Hmmmm. Great exercise.
My TV time is nearly non-existent, my email and meetings time would be higher. my sleep would be lower (but growing as work-life balance is getting more under control).
TV is the first to go… appreciate the feedback all.
Where is the line for exercise, walking around, seeing the world, being out on the street or in the air?
It’s in family, but there isn’t a lot of it in my life – at least not enough to itemize.
