"Sleep on it" is not just an admonition, but useful advice for small-business owners and managers struggling to sort out how to better run their businesses, including the use of new technology, according to a survey released Thursday by Staples.
Some 85% of the 300-plus small-business people interviewed for the survey indicated they were grappling with decisions on whether to incorporate new media such as blogs, podcasts, and virtual meeting software and services in their business activities. The Internet survey found that 51% "sleepwork," or dream about their work, and nearly 70% of those who do sleepwork put their "work dreams" into action when they wake up.
The Second Annual Staples National Small Business Survey also found that nearly 40% of the survey respondents said their best business ideas occurred while they were driving. In addition, the survey produced information that indicated that business managers were working too hard: Nearly 40% said they couldn't remember when they last took a vacation.
