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?
- Checking Facebook or Twitter?
- Distraction 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 distracted by all of those, and more, distractions. When I did the calculations of how ten minutes a day adds up … I calculated again to double check. Man, every ten minutes makes a big difference. It caused me to change how I use social media, or don’t.
