LinkedIn 30/30 Challenge – Day 1

LinkedIn 30/30 ChallengeToday was my first day of the challenge where I've committed to spending at least 30 minutes every day on LinkedIn helping others. My first realization is that I probably spend at least 30 minutes a day on LinkedIn throughout the day already but I never had specific tasks I wanted to accomplish. 

Here's what I commited to doing every day on LinkedIn for 30 days:

  • Post at least two status updates with useful information that will help my network
  • Like, Share or Comment on at least two status updates posted by my network
  • Ask or answer at least two group questions
  • Give at least two endorsements
  • Give at least two recommendations
  • Add at least two people to my network

​On Day 1 I accomplished all of these tasks except the two recommendations. I realize now that it takes time to create thoughtful recommendations so I'm going to commit to doing at least 3 per week. If I can do one each day I will but I want to stay within my 30 minute timeframe.

Today's results:

  • Post at least two status updates with useful information that will help my network – I posted 4 status updates
  • Like, Share or Comment on at least two status updates posted by my network – I Liked 2 posts, shared 2 posts and commented on 1 posts.
  • Ask or answer at least two group questions – I commented on 4 discussions in 3 group conversations
  • Give at least two endorsements – I gave endorsements to 4 people
  • Give at least two recommendations – I gave one recommendation
  • Add at least two people to my network –  I invited 10 people to join my network. 

All of this took about 45 minutes but I could easily have done it in 30 minutes if I didn't do it while checking email and reading the Wall Street Journal in between LinkedIn activities.

Tomorrow I'm going to set a timer for 30 minutes and close all other windows on my computer.

How was your first day of the challenge? Let me know in the Comments section.
