How much is your productivity worth? As a rough guide, take last month's turnover and divide by 20. That is your daily worth to your small business.
Now think back to yesterday. Where you really as productive as you could have been? If you're anything like me, your answer is probably, "No." And, if you're brutally honest, the reasons for this less-than-stellar productivity all point in one direction: You got distracted.
From being a terrible vice just 20 years ago, distraction has become a virtue in our society. Everyone is multitasking, which is another way of saying everyone is doing lots of things badly, all at the same time.
It's not just work that disrupts our work (if only). There is that book of faces (or maybe other bits of anatomy) that requires a sneak peak every half hour or so. There are emails, skype chats, telephone calls, text messages, BBMs, WhatsApps... There are colleagues, employees, suppliers, couriers. Heck, it's actually a wonder you got any work done at all.
Here's the thing: Deep down, we actually invite interruptions. They make us feel wanted. Being in a small business, loneliness is often your only friend. We try to fill this loneliness with "social media" (the ultimate oxymoron of our time), or other distractions. We don't really like the distractions - they leave us feeling empty. But we fear the loneliness of getting on with our work. You know, the stuff we do that puts bread on the table and money in the bank. Quite frankly, we are borderline depressed at the best of times, and not a little anxious as we lie awake at night, trying to figure out how to pay the bills.
If you go and see your typical general practitioner (or shrink, as the case may be) about your mood and fears, chances are you'll walk away with a prescription for pills that will take the edge off your emotions. Sadly they will also take the edge off lots of other things, like your ability to think clearly and act decisively. Certainly not what you need to survive at the helm of HMS Small Business.
If your business is suffering under your emotional state, I'd like to share an alternative solution with you. It's a Productivity Tool de luxe (which means it is tax deductible) and it is backed up by an impressive guarantee. It is not a pill, nor a self-help course, but a device. A device that gets your brain back into balance faster than you can say, "Usain Bolt." Here are some of the benefits you can expect to see:
- Your mood will be lifted almost immediately.
- You will be able to focus clearly and calmly, especially in times of crisis.
- Anxiety and tension will resolve, often from the first treatment.
- You will be able to solve complex problems much, much faster than you do now.
- Your memory will improve dramatically from the very first treatment
- Anger outbursts will be eliminated within a short time.
- You will sleep better, often from the first treatment.
- Headaches, even severe ones, are eliminated, often from the first treatment.
Does this sound too good to be true? The device is already being used by more than 30 Business Warriors, as well as many top level executives at multi-billion South African enterprises and dozens of creative folks like graphic designers, artists and musicians. None of them has made use of the incredible guarantee backing up this device. They are all doing better at what they're good at.
Safety? After more than 60 years of research and public use, not a single harmful side effect was ever recorded. The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved this device as being safe. Even better, this device will not wilt your willy (au contraire) or fog up your brain. Unlike the chemical options.
Risk? Zero, zip, zilch. If you buy it, there's a One Year money back guarantee. You can't do better than that. If you're not happy, simply return the device and get all your money back.
Upside? You work faster and more focused, you earn more, your marriage runs smoother and your kids do better at school.
Price? More or less as much as one day in the office is worth to you.
