I just read a blog by Ryan Honeyman in which he describes the results of his month long experiment to only check emails once a week. That’s right. Once a week!
One of the greatest benefits has been that his productivity has increased by a whopping 30-40%. What would that be worth to you? What would it be worth to your business if you could get that kind of result from all of your staff?
Even though we fantasize about how much we’d love to be less frantic, most of us are wedded to our busy-ness. We’re not prepared to stop doing some things in order to get better results. Interesting, isn’t it! What would you be willing to trade off in order to get a 40% boost to your productivity?
