Look who is reacting to the slap motivation video of Maneesh Sethi, the Indian-American founder of wearable device company `Pavlok’.
Sethi hired a woman off Craigslist to slap him every time he opened Facebook in a move that has left Elon Musk impressed.
In 2012, Sethi realized he wanted to increase his productivity, so he went to Craigslist looking for a person who would be willing to slap him every time he opened Facebook while he was supposed to be working.
“I hired a girl on Craigslist to slap me in the face every time I used Facebook,” he explained in his blog.
The results of his experiment were astounding. According to the Pavlok CEO, he hired a woman named Kara for $8 an hour to slap him every time he strayed off task – and his productivity skyrocketed to 98%.
A photo of Sethi being slapped by Kara for opening Facebook recently resurfaced on Twitter and caught the eye of the world’s richest man Elon Musk.
CEO of Tesla and SpaceX responded to the picture with two fire emojis. The emoji is used to signify something cool or awe-inspiring.
While Musk’s tweet has racked up nearly 10,000 ‘likes’, it left Sethi with more questions than answers.
“Is Elon Musk giving me two emojis the highest I’ll ever reach?” he asked in the comments section, wondering if the emoji were meant to signify his “‘Icarus flying too close to the sun’ moment.”
