Maneesh Sethi wrote on his blog that he hired a “slapper” to smack him in the face whenever he logged onto Facebook while working and boasted that it increased his productivity.

Of course, Sethi must have diagnosed the fact that accessing Facebook was causing him to lose productivity. His solution was drastic … but imaginative.

Think what you might do to create a metaphorical slap in the face for yourself … or your organisation.

What is it that might currently be draining focus and efficiency? How can you draw attention to it? How can you stop it happening?
