Just watch this, that’s all I have to say. Jason is so right about this topic. Here’s a few quotes to convince you.
“I’m going to talk about work, and why people can’t seem to get things done at work…”
“If you ask people the question, “where do you go when you really need to get something done?” you typically get three different types of answers; one is a kind of a place, a location or a room, another is a moving object, a third is a time…”
“The Train” < – That one caught my fancy, if you've ever talked to be about transit you know that one caught me…
"What you almost never hear people say is "the office""
"Managers and bosses will tell you the distractions at work are things like Facebook, Youtube…" "…and they'll go so far as to ban it…" "…what is this China?!"
"The real problem in the modern office is the M & Ms" < – Oh hell yeah, so very true.
"Manager's jobs are really to interrupt people…" "…they don't really do work so they have to interrupt you."
"You would never see a spontaneous meeting of employees, no, managers do that…"
