Addiction to social media is an issue for many, and despite some smart technological solutions to aid, not all of them are often effective. This is what Pavlok’s CEO faced back in 2012 when Facebook was one of the most happening places to be. Hence, he took an unorthodox approach to curb his Facebook addiction – slaps!
Maneesh Sethi, the Indian-American founder and CEO of wearable gadget organization Pavlok, hired a lady off Craigslist to slap him each time he opened Facebook in a move that has left Elon Musk impressed.
In 2012, Mr. Maneesh Sethi realized he needed to build his efficiency, so he went to Craigslist looking for a person who would be willing to slap him every time he opened Facebook while he was supposed to be working. “I hired a girl on Craigslist to slap me in the face every time I used Facebook,” he clarified in his blog, adding that the consequences of his examination were astonishing. As indicated by the Pavlok CEO, he recruited a lady named Kara for $8 an hour to slap him each time he wandered off task – and his usefulness soar to 98%.
A photograph of Mr. Maneesh Sethi being slapped by Kara for opening Facebook recently reemerged on Twitter and grabbed the attention of Elon Musk.
While Mr. Musk’s tweet has piled up almost 10,000 ‘likes’, it left Mr. Sethi with a larger number of inquiries than responses to.
“Is Elon Musk giving me two emojis the highest I’ll ever reach?” he asked in the comments section, wondering if the emoji were meant to signify his “‘Icarus flying too close to the sun’ moment.”
As CEO of Tesla and SpaceX – organizations that have turned him into one of the world’s richest men- Elon Musk has a great deal continuing. A little miracle, then, at that point, that he has his very own few stunts to expand usefulness. Here is a glance at some usefulness decisions that Mr. Musk once imparted to his employees in a letter.
