Remember when multitasking was big? Thankfully, we’ve come to our senses. Not only do we see multitasking for what it is–unattainable–we realize it’s actually good to focus . . . and then take a break every now and again. I do have proof: 7 Things Highly Productive People Do, for instance. Studies continue with the trend. That said, what better way to head into a week ready to face our giants, than with a little socializing? Yeah, I can’t think of anything either. So pour yourself a steaming cup of goodness, pull up a chair, and let’s have ourselves a little chat . . .

Luckily, no matter how things change, I still love this guy–such a class act, on screen and off;

It’s like a date who picks his nose right in front of you–horrifying, yet you’re not exactly sure what to do about it. Needless to say, after reading 15 Social Media Trends, I can totally see the ‘Brand Boredom’ (more like Brand hostility, where YouTube is concerned)–if you are at all involved in marketing, do proceed with caution, my friends;
