“Knowledge workers, on average, have just 2 hours and 48 minutes a day for productive tasks (or 14 hours and 8 minutes a week). The rest of the day is spent on neutral activities (1 hour and 6 minutes) and distracting activities (1 hour and 12 minutes). In fact, on average, 21% of the workday was spent on entertainment, news, and social media.”
I can’t decide if reading this will make you feel better or worse about the state of your own personal work-life balance these days.
The key takeaways include that 40% of people use their computers after 10 pm, 33% of salaried workers do work at home on the weekends, and the average person checks email or text messages every 6 minutes (yikes!) in a typical day.
