Why not read Fifty Shades of Grey on the treadmill?

Read while you exercise

A RECENT PAPER in Management Science reported that when people paired unproductive but fun things (like reading trashy novels) with health goals (like going to the gym) they were 56 percent more likely to achieve the former. So, what could you do that would be the equivalent of reading Fifty Shades of Grey while pounding the strider? How about alternating between SI.com and studying your POS guide, 15 minutes on/15 minutes off. Or setting a time to chat via your phone’s headset to your best friend from high school as you polish silver?

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
