Eastern philosophy talks about the unproductive chatter that runs through our heads. We’ve all got thoughts and conversations in play mode between our ears. This mental activity creates busyness which keeps us away from the essence of the moment. The Buddhist Term for this mental, destructive busyness is Monkey Mind.
At work there's some serious Monkey Business when we get bogged down with interoffice communications. There’s constant chatter demanding your attention. Beat the Monkey with a stick by creating a messaging system that keeps everyone mission focused without the burden of reading and responding to interoffice emails, or heaven forbid, listening and responding to voice mails. The app to check out is Slack- teams that use Slack see an average of 49% reduction in internal email, giving them more time to do great things. Slack is easy to use- a total necessity for great teams!
Simple interoffice chat keeps team members up to speed with the significant benefit of before and after conversation perspectives- they save time, mind space and keep all those damn monkeys out on the street!
