5 Super POWERS of Twitter

Imagine you’ve received a gift in an unlikely place.

.


During the National Speakers Association Conference I re-discovered the power of Using Twitter.  As the conference began I decided to tweet out thoughts, ideas and small steps for action.  This decision led to a connection to presenter Julie Morgenstern.   She gave me a gift that can help you survive, stabilize and succeed as you focus what’s important to you.

.


What is your Twitter strategy?  Do you use Twitter for taking notes, sharing and connecting?

.


#1.  POWER in taking notes.  The act of typing thoughts, ideas and small steps for action can lock in the information to your long-term memory.  You want to expose yourself to what you want to remember in an hour, day and week.  Where can you find your notes easily, have fun and meet powerful connections?  Twitter.

.


#2.  POWER in reviewing your notes:  By tweeting your thoughts, ideas and small steps for action you give yourself a place to check your information.  Your Tweeter friends can share your information.  You’re too busy to check Twitter?  You don’t have to.  You can set your Twitter account to email you when your friends share your information.

.


#3.  POWER in connecting:  Do you know it all?   No.  Twitter can help you connect with people who know something you don’t.   If you said yes then use the comment section to tell what you know.

.


#4.  POWER in small action steps:  Do you know that having small steps for action can help you survive, stabilize and succeed?  When you Tweet you get 140 characters to make your point.  You need to speak, write and communicate in sound bites.  You can like it or lump it.  Sound bites work.

.


#5.  Power in giving gifts:  How can you connect with a person that has published 5 books, been on Oprah 9 times and has a wealth of knowledge?    Sometime after her presentation Julie Morgenstern reviewed her “Twitter @ mentions”.  Dale Carnegie said that the sweetest sound is the sound of your own name.  Julie uses the Twitter name @JulieMorgenstrn.  When Julie found out I tweeted during her talk she sent the following gift to @77Dale ‘s in box.

.


“Good progress on the Sound bites!

.


Your blog post that includes the 10.75 List has wonderful headers –i.e. “Get Yourself a Yellow pad”.

.


Your list today of 3 tips is excellent but the sound bites would be better if you didn’t repeat the word “Have” 3x.

.


Instead, maybe something like …

.


#1.  Have a team in place.

.


#2.  Create a list of what you need to do while you are gone.

.


#3.  Develop a plan.

.


[Just some thoughts!]”

.


“Just a thought”?!  You’re brain-dead if you miss the wisdom from Julie Morgenstern.  Thank you Julie. Your story, passion and voice inspire.

.


How can you use your super POWERS today?

  1. I love Julie and I’m learning from her — she’s inspiring me to get organized and focused!

    • You are smart. I LOVE how you surround yourself with a team, friends and mentors that LAUNCH you to a new level. That’s a lesson I learned the year I lost one million dollars.
