What would you do to gain a week each year? That would be 2,400 minutes of saved time. That seems like a lot, right? It works out to be about ten minutes per workday!
What wastes ten minutes in a day (or more)?
- Checking Facebook or Twitter.
- Being distracted by the news feed or YouTube videos on your browser.
- Going through worthless emails.
- Spending too much time in unproductive meetings.
I have caught myself being waylaid by all of those, and more, distractions. When I did the calculation of how ten minutes a day can add up … I calculated again to double-check. Even ten minutes makes a big difference. It caused me to change how I use social media, or don’t.
