I heard from fellow organizer, Tara Donohue Rudo, these sobering statistics about procrastination.

  • An average employee has 37 hours of uncompleted work on their desk.
  • Executives spend 7.8 hours per week in meetings and 108 minutes daily reading and responding to emails.
  •  An average employee spends 3 hours per week sorting through piles in their office.
  • They also spent 6 weeks per year searching for lost documents (1 hour per day).

Thanks Tara.
