For all the awardees, we say a big congratulations and that your work has not ended and you have much more in you. We all have much more in us.

PFS hopes you have a productive and heroic week, and we will arm you with a productivity tip for this week: Ruthlessly block out distractions. Planning your work schedule and tasks are good, and it is also good to have a point of reference if you indeed get distracted. However, learning to block out distractions, can increase your productivity output. These distractions can be from within the workplace and those habits that you have (compulsively checking social media) etc. Distractions are different from taking breaks, as it is after you have focused on a single task until completion (or near it) that you take a break to recharge. A distraction would be stopping in the middle of that task.
This productivity tip (as all others) are PFS’ way of endorsing that increased productivity can boost the economy. It does not take the economist or the accountant only, to do this. This is something that every citizen can do: take your job seriously, as it is a way of securing your income. When the culture as evolved that we are a more dedicated and productive people, it inspires more confidence in investor (both locally and internationally) and we all know that the country can use some strong and steady investment.
Your partner in Finance sends you off to a week where you have the opportunity to do something heroic, as we too, do our part in being your financial heroes. This means we consistently improve our products and services to make your loan process as hassle free as possible.
