Music = Productivity

It is amazing how many people at work now listen to their own music during the day.  Walking around the halls, a large majority of knowledge workers have the now famous iPod buds in their ears.  You can also find upgraded headphones from Sennheiser, Bose, Dr. Dre and many others as the headphone business has exploded, with many new providers coming on the scene.  There are also many types of headphones available including in-ear buds, over-ear headphones, wireless, behind the neck and clip on headphones.

Given how ubiquitous ear buds/headphones and listening to your own tuneage have become, the folks at Sonos have put together an interesting infographic about how different job types should listen to different music to improve their productivity during the day.

So to get this party started here are the music genres assessed during this evaluation:

Here are some of the recommendations:

What music are you listening to?  Maybe a change will make a difference!

Pinterest – Everything you need to know

In our last blog we discussed how Pinterest is changing the game relative to social selling and e-commerce.  Our friends at Hubspot (www.hubspot.com) have put together 10 infographics that illuminate everything possible about Pinterest.  Well maybe not everything, but just about.  Here is a peak at infographic numero uno.

The remaining Pinterest infographics can be found at http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/33078/10-Pinterest-Infographics-Visual-Explanations-for-a-Visual-Social-Network.aspx

Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More…

Since it is Monday we will start with a great tune from the Allman Brothers:

Last Sunday mornin’ … the sunshine felt like rain…Week before … they all … seemed the same…With the help of God and true friends … I come to realize…I still had two strong legs … and even wings to fly…And oh I … ain’t-a wastin’ time no more…’Cause time goes by like … hurricanes … and faster things…Lord, lord Miss Sally … why … all your cryin’?…Been around here three long days-uh … you lookin’ like you’re dyin’…Just step yourself outside and look up at the stars above…Go on downtown baby … find somebody to love…Meanwhile I … ain’t-a wastin’ time no more…’Cause time goes by like … pouring rain … and much faster things…You don’t need no gypsy to tell you why…You can’t let one precious day slip by…But look inside yourself …and if you don’t see what you want…Maybe sometimes then you don’t…But leave your mind alone and just get high … oh, yessuh…Well by and by way after … many years have gone…And all the war freaks die off … leavin’ us alone…We’ll raise our children in the peaceful way we can…It’s up to you and me brother…To try and try again…Well, hear us now … we ain’t wastin’ time no more…’Cause time goes by like … hurricanes…Runnin’ after subway trains…Don’t forget the pouring rain

Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More The Allman Brothers

In this fast paced world we live in, the one thing that has not changed is time.  We are all trying to do more, but in spite of all the technology and advancements in productivity, we are challenged to maximize our daily impact by many things that are out of our control.  I came across a great infographic this weekend about wasting time at work.  The culprit turns out to be the technology and productivity tools that were put in place to improve this situation.  In an 8 hour day, here are the time sucks for a knowledge worker

  • 74 minutes a day trying to contact customers or colleagues
  • 67 minutes a day trying to find key information
  • 39 minutes a day duplicating communications
  • 33 minutes a day attempting to schedule meetings
  • 29 minutes a day sifting through unwanted communications

So if we add that up, it comes to a total of 242 minutes a day or approximately 4 hours.  So half of the 8 hour work day goes to this stuff.  The infographic goes on to talk about how cloud based solutions can improve this situation.  We have covered cloud based applications a number of times in previous blogs, but this one is more specific to a unified communications cloud based implementatioon.  Here are the findings from the study:

Technology can always help but it is most important for each of us to stay focused on what is most important.  Measure what you are doing everyday and eliminate as much “noise”as possible.  Focus only on the deliverables that are going to have the biggest impact on the business and on your development.  These are the only things that matter.  Focus on changing the game and not just playing the game.

All the best.

In Just 60 Seconds….

A lot happens in 60 seconds.

As you know by now, the Webman loves infographics.  I was introduced to this concept many years ago, through the work of Edward Tufte, an original infographer.  http://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/

The world of infographics has exploded as the amount of new information has exploded.  Today I found a terrific infographic that defines what happens in our world today in 60 seconds.  I will cite just a few of the most interesting facts for you.

Every 60 seconds this happens:

  • 13,000 iPhone applications are downloaded
  • 98,000 tweets are sent
  • 6,600 new pictures are uploaded to Flickr
  • 695,000 statuses are updated on Facebook
  • 168,000,000 e-mails are sent
  • 694,445 search queries happen on Google
  • 600+ new videos are uploaded to You Tube
  • 1,820 terabytes of data are created
  • 11,000,000 conversations are happening on instant messenger
  • Google makes $75,000  in revenue
  • 925 iPhone 4S’s are sold
  • 81 iPads are sold
  • 18 Kindle Fires are sold

Here is the link to the infographic.  Enjoy!
