There are a lot of problems with procrastination, says Sam Dang.
He is one of the founders of the UK-based organisation Seadoo Solutions.
“We know that people get a lot done on the weekends, so we set up a team of people who work on that,” he says.
This is the idea behind Seadoomers. “
If we could figure out how to fix this problem, it would be a game-changer.”
This is the idea behind Seadoomers.
It was founded in 2015, with the aim of solving a problem that is plaguing some of the world’s most ambitious individuals.
“It’s been around for about 20 years now, but we’ve had a real hit,” says Dang, who is based in London.
“The problem is that people spend so much time on things.
We’ve seen people who spend a whole day, a month, a year, just on the internet.”
“They’re not going to be able to do anything productive.
They can’t spend a lot more time thinking about things, they’re not productive.”
In recent years, people have been working hard on improving their productivity.
A study last year by US psychologists found that productivity can be improved by as much as 20 per cent.
But Dang believes that the problem is getting worse.
“There’s a lot going on,” he explains.
“Our research shows that the people who get most done on weekends, that’s the people we see on weekends working really hard.”
The Seadoos team is working with companies and universities to help solve the problem.
“In some industries, like medicine, that is very common.
If we can figure out what they need to do, then we can start looking at how they do it,” says David Johnson, who runs the organisation’s London office.
Johnson is the co-founder of the Productivity Group at McKinsey, a consultancy, which has also developed an online software platform called Seadool that uses data to help organisations make better decisions.
The system can analyse people’s habits, find out how much time they spend online, and create action plans.
This information is then shared with the company, who then uses it to set their own productivity goals.
This system could help improve the quality of work done by people who are already good at their job.
“I think it’s really important for us to try and help people who want to improve their productivity,” says Johnson.
“For some of them, it may be very challenging, but there’s a huge opportunity.”
“You’re not really in the same league as someone else” In the UK, productivity is measured by the amount of time people spend online every day, but Dang says that this is not an accurate measure of productivity.
“What we really need is a more accurate measure,” he points out.
“That’s why we started this.
In the US, the idea of a productivity improvement programme started by Dang and his co-founders, is gaining traction. “
And I think that it’s pretty clear that productivity is an issue for a lot less than it is for a bunch of other things.”
In the US, the idea of a productivity improvement programme started by Dang and his co-founders, is gaining traction.
In 2016, the US Department of Labor created the Seadooters project, which provides free software that helps companies improve productivity.
It has been downloaded more than 1.4 million times.
The organisation also has its own website, and an app, called Productivity.co, that has been launched in the UK and is being rolled out to other countries.
“People are trying to get more organised, to have a bit more control over their work,” says Wilson.
“But we need to help them achieve that.”
