I'm Manal Assaad, aka The Manalyst, a Branding Fanatic, Marketing Enthusiast, and Media Addict. By profession, I'm a Social Media consultant with a strategic marketing sense, a keen eye in design, a quirky style in communications, and avidity for publicity PR. By passion, I'm into travel, psychology, sociology, mythology, movies and TV series, technology and gadgets, music and dancing, languages, art and culture, fashion designing and styling.
Wisdom entails that we look at our mistakes and our failures as learning opportunities... The thought that's been haunting me is: How exactly do we know what we're supposed to learn from our mistakes?!
Do you spend a lot of time on your mobile using social networks or playing games? If you're like most people, you probably do... I am not saying I don't; I actually tracked how much time I usually spend on social networks and other distracting apps using RescueTime, one of the tools I recommend using for productivity management, and it's around 2 hours on average per day! Although you might be using each app for a few minutes every other hour, but these minutes pile up throughout the day, and you end up wasting hours with not much gain. I'm not advising you to quit social networking; as a social media consultant, it would be bad for my business if you do lol
