A Light That Can Instantly Increase Your Productivity by 50%

A Light That Can Instantly Increase Your Productivity by 50%

Distractions at work by coworkers is one of the biggest culprits for loss of productivity for many businesses. This is especially true when it comes to a business that has work areas that put a large number of employees in an open area. While most people do not intentionally look to interfere with a coworkers ability to get their job done, but unfortunately, not everyone knows what everyone is doing all the time. Unscheduled meetings with coworkers can be annoying and especially if they just pop up at your desk. A company called Luxafor has come up with a simple solution, the Luxafor Flag.

Notify Your Co-workers Your Working Status

The Luxafor Flag is a unique signaling system that can easily alert someone who could be looking to approach a coworker for small talk or any unscheduled meeting that the person is potentially busy. The system includes a lighted indicator that is attached to each computer monitor in the room and a control application that changes the color of the indicator light on the flag. Each person in the room is trained on how the system works and each of the colors of the light is explained.

    The Luxafor Flag is a passive interoffice notification system that is designed to reduce or eliminate the loss of productivity in a busy business environment. By using a simple lighted LED to let others know that you work status so that everyone knows whether you can be approached or not. Here is what one user has said about using the Luxafor Flag:

    “A few of my office mates tested out the Luxafor devices and found them so helpful that we ordered more. Our productivity has increased because we feel more comfortable approaching one another and can quickly tell when others are free to chat.

    When working on a writing project with a tight deadline, the red indicator light is a lifesaver, but I found the green light to be even more helpful. Now I can interrupt my colleagues free of guilt!”

    The Daily Rituals of 7 Successful CEOs

    The Daily Rituals of 7 Successful CEOs

    One of my favorite success quotes ever comes from one of the original and most successful ‘CEOs’ of his era: Aristotle. Here’s what he said:

    “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

    This advice is just as sound today as it was when Aristotle first expressed it, way back when. I’m reminded of this at least once a week, when I interview an inspiring author, leader, or successful CEO on my show. I ask my guests a series of questions about what has contributed to their success and their ability to build something meaningful.

    You want to know what nearly all of them say? Almost every time, they respond by telling me that their success is the result of simple habits  enacted day after day.

    These quotes from seven successful CEOs demonstrate the daily rituals that have contributed to their success:

    1. Promote what you love.

    “It’s so much better to promote what you love than to bash what you hate.” – Jessica Alba, CEO of The Honest Company

    2. Develop a feedback loop.

    “I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.” – Elon Musk, CEO of TESLA Motors

    3. Create things that are better, not just “different.”

    “Our task today is to find singular ways to create the new things that will make the future not just different, but better—to go from 0 to 1. The essential first step is to think for yourself. Only by seeing our world anew, as fresh and strange as it was to the ancients who saw it first, can we both re-create it and preserve it for the future.” – Peter Thiel, CEO of Palantir and best-selling author of Zero To One.

    4. Meditate.

    “Meditate. Breathe consciously. Listen. Pay attention. Treasure every moment. Make the connection.” – Oprah Winfrey, CEO of OWN Network

    5. Read every day.

    “Read 500 pages every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up like compound interest.”-Warren Buffet, CEO of investment firm Berkshire-Hathaway

    6. Block time for email.

    “Set aside a 20- to 30-minute chunk of time two or three times a day for email. Do not check continually through the day.” – Doug Camplejohn, CEO of predictive lead marketing company FlipTop.

    7. Make your customers happy.

    “We see our customers as invited guests to a party, and we are the hosts. It’s our job every day to make every important aspect of the customer experience a little bit better.” – Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.com

    Develop the right rituals. Become a successful CEO.

    If the majority of these daily habits are new to you, avoid making the crucial mistake of adopting all of these habits at once. Research on habit-formation indicates that lasting habits are formed one at a time.

    For example, let’s say you’re excited about developing the following daily habits:

    • daily reading,
    • daily meditation, and
    • updating your to-do list every night

    Let’s say that daily reading is the one that excites you the most out of the three habits noted above. It would be wise of you to begin by choosing and scheduling time to read every day, and then sticking to that time until it becomes a habit. Once it feels effortless and automatic, you’ll know that you’ve turned it into a daily habit. Now you’re ready to install the next habit… and the next… Until before you know it, you’ll start looking in the mirror and seeing the reflection of a successful CEO.
