Short Story

There are salesmen in an organization, and both of them are hard-working.

The name of the first salesman is John while the second salesman is Ade.

They both have a budget for their campaign and marketing.

John prefers offline marketing while Ade prefers online marketing.

John spends most of his work hours doing cold calls and he always makes some sales during the day.

Ade spends most of his work hours online searching for customers and only goes out when there is a potential client or client to meet up with.

Ade also automated his marketing process, which means that even when he is sleeping, his marketing campaigns are still on and auto-responses are generated when customers make enquiries.

This is how John and Ade have been doing their work but they always get different results.

At the end of the month, Ade makes more sales than John.

Ade spends a lesser budget compared to John.

John is more stressed out than Ade at the end of the month.

From the story above you will see that Ade is more productive. John and Ade can have the same time and resources but the way they use it will determine how productive they will be.

So, you can see that people can be more productive with their time if they do things in a certain way.
