It is a wonder we ever get anything done!

I keep hearing about this study and that news piece talking about how much time we are spending doing tasks that are not at all productive.

For example – the study that says that the average executive is spending 1 hour a day looking for files that are misplaced (either paper or electronic). That adds up to 6 weeks every year!

Or, what about the reports that the average office worker is spending 15 hours a week dealing with the email inbox (and this is not talking about the actual work – just getting through the average 470 emails each week). That is another 19-1/2 weeks every year.

I did the math. 25-1/2 weeks each year dealing with misfiled documents and our email inbox!

It is a wonder we ever get anything done.
