“Three Steps You Can Do to Do Real Stuff That Matters”
Hosted by Jim Shaffer -
Jim Shaffer Group
Many communication professionals are needlessly mired in an activity trap.
Doing stuff whether it matters or not. Meet here. Tweet there. Answer the boss’ stupid question. Order lunch for the meeting. Post the speech on YouTube. Get the town hall slides done. More retweets here--some “likes” there.
Spend money on an activity that generates 1,000 click-throughs but no sales--no profit. Nada.
