I was on time. My appointment was not.
I get that things get in the way. And I have been late to an appointment once (OK, maybe more than once….)
At least I received a text a little while ago telling me she was running 15 minutes late.
I wonder how she knew my mobile number? Of course! it was on my LinkedIn profile! Good thing I show it there…
But as I sat in the parking lot waiting the time out, watching for her to arrive, I was productive on my mobile phone:
- I checked my home page for reading material to improve my perspective,
- I used the mobile LinkedIn app to wish 3 people happy work anniversary with a personalized note,
- I answered a client question with a screen print from LinkedIn (internet version), and
- I invited someone to connect to me, a referral from a good friend, and only after I spoke to him on the phone to vet him (you know my opinion on this!).
As I reflect in my mental mirror back on this, I used LinkedIn effectively, even the app with its limitations.
So you see, I was LinkedIn-productive in down time. You can be too.
