In his book Breathing Space, Jeff Davidson points out the following: During a work life of forty-eight years (between ages twenty-two and seventy), any activity that you engage in for an average of thirty minutes each day consumes one complete year of your life.
OK, that's just basic math - but it sure gave me pause.

Exclusive Contents Internet Marketing Blog writes that Clarissa Rodriguez, a productivity architect, was quoted in the Boston Herald's Women's Business section in June 2006 about time spent handling e-mail. She said, "On average, employees spend two hours per day reading and responding to unproductive, low importance messages. That’s a hefty 12 weeks a year. What would you and your employees each do with an extra 480 hours this year? Next year?"
And then there's the time we spend watching TV.
