What You'll Discover In This Episode:
Has your credit card fallen victim to late-night infomercials? You’re hardly alone. The products marketed are typically affordable, convenient to purchase from the comfort of your own home, and make certain tasks seem so easy and fast to accomplish. And who doesn’t like easy and efficient?
Perhaps that’s why millions of people have bought such kitchen gadgets as the Slap Chop, Pancake Batter Dispenser, Avocado Slicer, Brownie Maker, and Egg Separator.
They reportedly make the art of prepping a meal more efficient. Perhaps you have one or two of them. Single handedly, sure, they can increase efficiency if you’re chopping a ton of onions or making pancakes for the entire football team. I can appreciate efficiency tools that serve a purpose.
But what tends to happen though, is all those small gadgets get lost in your drawers and cabinets, create additional clutter, it takes longer to find them when they’re needed, and it just means one more thing you have to wash and dry. It means you’ve overcomplicated mealtime when a common large knife or spoon would have sufficed just fine.
Might you be doing the same thing in your business? Overcomplicating parts of it in the name of efficiency when really, it makes you feel overwhelmed and your business less enjoyable to run?
In this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, I dive into the tendency of many business owners to overcomplicate their businesses and discuss strategies to simplify your business so it is less overwhelming and more enjoyable.
