I wake up and, before the coffee kicks in, I am already scrolling in my mind all the things that need to be done. The important ones, the urgent ones, and all those that go into the not-a-matter-of-life-and-death list. My cortisol levels rise, and I am alert, ready to face the challenges of the day. My brain doesn’t need that coffee to function, for it is already speeding down the road of productivity lane. But I have one anyway.
Usually, around this time I have already mind-mapped the most efficient way to approach the duties of the day. Sometimes I wish I could glimpse at how the people I work with think. Do their brains function the way mine does? How do they approach productivity? I wonder because I care both about those people and the company I co-founded 4 years ago.
So I put together a guide
Instead of fussing around resolutions’ lists, my team and I embarked on the task to create another type of agenda—one that aims to help busy professionals. It is, in fact, just a bonus to the essential. We compiled a book called “5 Steps to a More Productive Workflow”, which is a short, clear and fun guide to an optimal workflow designed for professionals with a vision.
What is common between visionaries like Elon Musk, Arianna Huffington and Warren Buffett, besides success?
The answer is that they read, and they read a lot. Some read a book a week, others read 500 pages a day. Yet, in this fast-paced business environment, how realistic is it for any
manager to spend enough time and catch up with the big names in the business?
The market is saturated with books that explain how to optimize the workflow. The overwhelming choice and need for the hygienic filter of information require the most precious of all – our time. We thought about it and extracted the essence of all the information out there, by proposing 5 easy and proven steps that lead to a more productive workflow. In the book, one can find universal solutions, information, food for thought and a reason to smile. What about? For instance, did you know that workplace chaos is directly linked to financial loss? This is what a study conducted by the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAVO) says. And actually, unless your employees are Buddhist monks undercover, chances are they will have a hard time to concentrate with all the noise. And there are many other such bits and pieces of insights we collected.
The “5 Steps to a More Productive Workflow” eBook can help you better understand how prioritizing increases productivity, why is it important to remember the company’s vision and how to make the most out of it, how does the office interior affect productivity, how to keep that focus when it’s noisy, what makes a tidy workspace so much more than a nice Instagram background…
Part of ESCREO’s mission is to help businesses operate more efficiently. In the dynamics of the modern business, coordinating a team and keeping up the fire of productivity is a challenge. Intelligent leaders know how to make the most out of all the tools that help communication flow. We, as a company, offer such tools. Much more than that, we are committed to exploring the heart of the problem, so we could provide holistic solutions. Just think about this:
“We live in a society ruled by an unwritten law: one is more when one does more; the busier one is the more important and successful.”
Yet, to what extent is more synonymous with productivity and a prerequisite for success?
Are we busy with being busy (mostly with insignificant tasks), or are we engaged in productive activities?”
The alarm rings. It’s Monday… or Thursday. It doesn’t matter. Maybe, you need a coffee first. Take your time and prepare, before you embark on the mission to lead your business.
*Have in mind this is a marketing book aimed at positioning the products of Escreo. It, however, is also a free 2020 inspiration for more productive workflow not directly related to a purchase.
