Does social media consume you?

I was listening last week to a football coach being interviewed on the radio. I can’t remember the college team he coached, but he had a law degree and he was talking about something other than football-so it was turning into a good interview-because it was free of cliches. He was telling a story about his mentor in law and he asked his mentor if he liked law. His mentor responded that he “thought about law at all hours”. He said that it consumed him, but in a good way. He said that in life you should “do” what consumes you.

I thought about that as I drove. Beyond your family, What get’s your motor running? What can you talk about with relative ease? It can be your passion. But even more, it’s easy for you to think about it. It’s a no brainer. The more I thought about it, the more I’m starting to realize that I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking of the ways that social media can be used in all walks of life, in social settings, and in work environments.

To me, I see social media as a way to connect, to solve problems, to communicate and to converse on a scale that we have never seen before. That consumes me. That possibility. That challenge.

So…. What Consumes You?
