Social Media ROI and the Junk in My Garage

Every spring I make the pilgrimage to our garage — well, not exactly a pilgrimage as much as a walk through the door — to take inventory of the massive amount of junk that has accumulated over the years. Amid the motor oil from the last century and trimmers and hedgers that haven't seen a blade of grass in years, there they were. Four different saws. The last thing I remember sawing was the base of a Christmas tree, not exactly a job fit for four saws, and hardly falling into the logger category of work. In fact, the only logs I saw are the kind when I'm horizontal on the hammock. But they did remind me of one of my favorite adages. A saying that rings true in just about anything we do. Measure twice, cut once. I'm not sure who said it, most likely a carpenter or a surgeon, but one thing's for certain — it doesn't apply to social media where we're more prone to saying, "Just keep doing it, don't worry about measuring it."
