Nine Minutes

What would happen if you devoted nine minutes to building your brand every day starting today? How would that change your career?

That is a question I have been pondering for some work I’ve been doing for LinkedIn. They hired me to create a whitepaper on continuous career management. You can learn more about it here I spent a lot of this past week doing media interviews (I had to get up at 2am so I could do radio shows during UK morning commuting time!). The press is really interested in this concept. They know that their listeners understand that they need to spend time working on our careers while working in them; but they feel they just don’t have the time.

Part of what I learned in my research is that nine minutes is the ideal amount of time to set aside each day to focus on your career. So what if you set aside just nine minutes – what would you do?

In producing the whitepaper, I became really excited about what an impact just nine minutes a day can make to building your brand and advancing your career. There are so many things you can do with those precious 540 seconds. In the coming issues – and at The Personal Branding Blog I will share my thoughts on this topic.

If the idea of spending nine minutes a day intrigues you, I suggest you join the ‘nine minutes a day’ group at LinkedIn. There, you will find other like-minded careerists and you’ll be able to share ideas for the best ways to invest your nine minutes.
