Putting an End To Gemmelsmerch

Published

on

Here’s a new word for you: gemmelsmerch.

Gemmelsmerch is the force that distracts a person from what he or she wants to or ought to be doing. And it is as pervasive and powerful as gravity. Sources of gemmelsmerch include email, texts, phone, magazines, mail, cell phones, TV, mess in your office — essentially anything that distracts you from the task at hand.

Solutions to gemmelsmerch include software that keeps you away from websites that cause you problems, noise-cancelling headphones that allow you to concentrate on your work, a closed and locked door, a phone set to silence and no vibration.

Your job today: reduce the gemmelsmerch around you. And yes, right now, your faithful blogger is drowning in gemmelsmerch, hence the brevity of today’s blog post.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
