"Why I Hired A Girl On Craigslist to Slap Me In The Face.."

..and how it quadrupled my productivity.

Interesting read, especially for those of us who can't seem to focus on getting work done. And yes, I'm supposed to be working on an assignment right now. Oh the irony.

Why I Hired A Girl On Craigslist to Slap Me In The Face — And How It Quadrupled My Productivity

Quote:
When are you most productive? Depending on your personality, you might not need alone time—you might need a team.

Humans are social animals—we aren’t designed to live and work alone. Now that the average worker’s job is to sit in front of a computer,—often with no supervision—it’s no surprise that we are only productive a three days each week. Having worked mostly alone, on my computer, I found that the majority of my time is spent unproductively.

So I measured my productivity, using a nifty little app called RescueTime. RescueTime sits in the background of your computer and measures the amount of time you spend on your computer and on each Website. It lets you see exactly how much time you spent hard at work on your Excel spreadsheet—and exactly how much time you wasted watching episodes of [The League] (holy shit go watch The League).

Nothing makes me more embarassed than seeing the amount of hours I spend wasted on Reddit and Facebook chat.
The rest of the article is too long to quote..don't want to bombard this thread with a wall of text.

Interesting read, Easy to understand that it adds a fun element to it but it is out of the ordinary hahaha.

I'm not going to lie, my productivity would probably skyrocket if I had someone slapping me every time i wandered off track.

Does hiring a man or woman make a difference?

The app measures my productivity....I will probably just look the app numbers and say "Oh I spent 2 hours on youtube, well that sucks..." *back to being unproductive*

My buddy once had a month long work project that he HAD to deliver on.

He gave me $6000 to hold on to, and a time line of what he had to finish every day for that month.
If there was a day where he didn't complete his daily task, he told me to spend $200. Like, actually spend it. And at the end of the month, he gets back the remainder of what's left.

He ended up only falling behind on 1 day. So I went out for a dinner at the Keg with the gf and bought myself a tank of gas. I of course texted him pictures of our meal, along with a "thanks bro.", which he replied with "assholes."

In the end, he got the project finished and got a pretty 5-figure paycheque from his company, so that $200 was a small price to pay to keep himself on track.

I guess some people just need to feel some sort of pressure to get things done. Whether its money.. or getting slapped in the face.

havin a girly slap me around would be very counter productive. I'd be wasting to much time fighting a sexual harassment/assault charge lol
