Mid-Week Reload: A Flood of Productivity?

MM Mid-Week Reload

Mid-Week Reload #1

Welcome to the new “Mid-Week Reload!” Marketing Mercenary found the Monday Morning posts difficult to do “regularly,” so I’m moving the post to mid-week. In addition, I’m refocusing on articles that are hopefully helpful to your work, rather than topics that are merely interesting to discuss.

Lately, I’ve been thinking about all the rain we’ve had.  It’s quite evident that there are portions of some area farm fields in which the crops have been drown out. However, it’s also easy to see that the grass, trees, and the remaining crops are growing like mad!

What does this have to do with productivity?

It’s like this: The corn and bean fields have lost a few acres to the big puddles (some call them “ponds”). Yet the other areas in the fields look really great. Now, I know some of these dead areas are large enough to actually hurt the total yield, even considering the fact that the rest of the crop is doing great.

(This is where we get to the productivity part.)

You might think reading business books and blogs, listening to marketing CDs, and attending seminars is just too much – that your overall “yield” will suffer because of all the time it takes. Certainly a balance must be obtained regarding educational time vs. time at your desk or on the production floor, working. But, when you’re soaking your mind with a regular downpour of technical advice, motivational literature, and entrepreneurial inspiration,  your “productive time” will steadily become much more productive! Your high-yield crop of financial success can be obtained without taking up the entire “field” of your available days and nights.

What’s your favorite resource to enhance your productivity? Is it a blog? A magazine? The Bible? A pod-cast? Drop it in the comments below for the rest of us to try.
