Lots happening here at WittyParrot and a frantic start to 2014.
Everyone I speak to in business is working 14-16 hours a day and it’s non-stop. It seems that our already hard working society has gone into over-drive… this can’t be healthy… but is should serve to boost our economy.
Please read on and see how to save 10 hours or more week. There is a better way.
Last weekend a WittyParrot website visitor hit one of our landing pages to download an ebook at 10PM on Saturday evening. I replied thanking them for downloading it in a personalized follow-up. They replied within a few minutes, expressing strong interest in a custom demonstration of our product. So it’s not just technology supplier sales and marketing people that are working all-hours… buyers in industry are as well.
It seems that with so many hours invested in our jobs, that we should be looking for ways to get more done in less time; so we can spend time away from work, with our families, outdoors, exercising and having fun, or even going to the pub with mates. My British friends will raise a cheer to this one.
This newsletter is all about productivity improvement and how rethinking age-old paradigms is yielding new and exciting ways to get things done and become more competitive. Enjoy.
