How much money are you losing due to ineffective workflows?

Even the most diligent high-performance workers fall victim to routine and inefficient team practices. Entrepreneurs take a visionary approach toward solving problems, and so too must their teams. At Ridiculously Efficient, we focus on three core factors to enable superhuman productivity:

  • Determine Goals and Success Metrics

    We examine the ideal vision and compare it to the reality. What steps must happen to achieve this vision? What timelines, milestones and quality indicators help us “keep score” and recognize a successful effort?

  • Ditch the Unnecessary

    We remove inefficient processes and practices. We march through every hour of the day, defending tasks, to-dos, tools and even traditions by asking, “Does this accelerate or hinder my progress?”

  • Deliver Consistent Results with Downtime

    We honor our lives outside work, and fill downtime with activities that fuel our productivity, mental clarity and focus, fulfillment and health. This is the ultimate reward for effectiveness.

You’ll Never Say “But Nobody Gets My Job!” Again

The Rebel community is comprised of entrepreneurs’ “secret weapons.” Not only are we increasingly sharpening our skills, we’re also connecting and sharing our best insights on how to survive and thrive in a hectic, always-on work environment.

Tools and Mindset to Deliver Results

The modern work environment is a minefield of productivity killers. Key team members must learn to navigate these hazards to maintain effectiveness, stay motivated and engaged, and prevent burnout.

  • Interruptions

    Knowledge workers lose 2.7 hours each day due to interruptions. After each interruption, it takes them 23 minutes to reorient and resume work. (Basex, Gallup)

  • Intentional Inefficiency

    34% of employees intentionally waste time at work because of long hours, while 32% waste time because they are not incentivized to work harder. (Salary.com)

  • Email Overload

    28% of the average workweek is spent reading and answering email. Assuming an 8-hour workday, that adds up to 11 hours per week. (McKinsey)

  • Meeting Madness

    47% of workers cite excessive mandatory meetings as their #1 office time-waster. (Salary.com)

  • Disorganization

    Nearly 50% of surveyed American workers work late 2-3x/week due to disorganization. 20% of the average workday is spent searching for and gathering information. (Boston Globe, McKinsey)

  • Ineffective Communication

    Poorly written emails (unclear, unprofessional, disorganized, tactless) cost organizations $2,100 to $4,100 per user, per year in lost productivity. (Tom Pisello)
