  • Nearly 80% of children between the ages of 0 and 5 use the Internet on at least a weekly basis in the United States,
  • The analysis found that during the week, most children spend at least three hours a day watching television, and that television use among preschoolers is the highest it has been in the past eight years. Of the time that children spend on all types of media, television accounts for a whopping 47%.
  • Heavy television viewing may even be partially responsible for the rising number of children who use the Internet. Parents in one study indicated that more than 60% of children under age three watch video online. That percentage decreases as children get older (the report suggests this is because school-age children have less time at home), but even 8- to 18-year-old children reported in another study that they consume about 20% of their video content online, on cellphones, or on other portable devices like iPods.

    • Every day, before leaving the office, save a few minutes to think about what just happened. Look at your calendar and compare what actually happened — the meetings you attended, the work you got done, the conversations you had, the people with whom you interacted, even the breaks you took — with your plan for what you wanted to have happen. Then ask yourself three sets of questions:

      • How did the day go? What success did I experience? What challenges did I endure?

      •  
      • What did I learn today? About myself? About others? What do I plan to do — differently or the same — tomorrow?

      •  
      • Who did I interact with? Anyone I need to update? Thank? Ask a question? Share feedback?
