And so there's some kind of fun little facts and hear about where we're wasting our time.
To no one's surprise Friday is the biggest time wasting day and of course and particularly now we're going in the summer it's really going to be a tough one to -- -- it.
Also most people say or claim that they waste their time between three to five.
In the afternoon on weekdays so the -- sort of like the witching hour of wasting time apparently setting up you're breaking becomes very yet didn't make sense your kind of winding down a little bit tired Spezza -- a more.
Kind of like a nine to five schedule and it.
And over a third of people -- at least -- half hour that day at work now.
The number on -- again.
But it adds up after awhile TI of course you know exposes that we always time all the time whether it's -- personality and -- -- -- do nothing but -- for eight hours.
It would be hard right so we need those breaks and so what do you think the number one time -- -- And in.
Emails to friends like this group Cheney announced.
Up you know it right field line and social media.
And just web serving generals actually the second highest time twister come back of course being on news sites is tops the list when it comes a web surfing -- -- watching us right now despite.
Because very informative.
But the biggest one is chatting with co workers you know grabbing someone down the hall date they want to talk real quick -- -- things.
I don't know that's.

Social media was kind of its own after web surfing so that was the number three then I think that's where very small.

-- -- -- Another interesting fact is the industry that wastes the most time I don't think anyone surprise me let me.
Industry and it weeks and months time -- finance our government out of course we don't notice.
It's a good AMP awaited products that you're I don't think that they're going.
Mexico it's actually utilities.

Actually being the organization psychologists I look at the city that's good -- that for any manager did you wanna think about.
What do you do with this and first thing I think that the big thing that I always -- any manager is you've got to keep your finger on the pulse of your team.
You're not managing for not having conversations find out what sort of things are really wasting -- killing their time that they may not.
Have control over that you can fix like going to meetings that they don't need to be going to.
Having to deal with stuff because of a bottleneck in the process or coworkers not getting -- stuff so they're forced to wait time they have nothing better to do and they go around and talk to people when she got -- -- conversations and find out from everybody.
Are there time killers what can I as a -- do about it so we can extract that.
Out of your day and get you more productive right.
The other thing is when you look at this information you'll want to think about being flexible.
So we're getting in the summer it's supposedly gonna get nicer hopefully and other getting snow song Colorado.
You want to think about.
If that three to five time period every day we know that's a big time killer time waste your.
Maybe that's a great time to give people breaks to allow them to go run those errands that you do for the business of light stuff.
Or -- that we can set those for certain meeting times where.
Pull people and because we get it we're together we're likely to at least be somewhat productive -- -- -- -- hottest car for.
Or what it because we know Friday some -- -- big time -- start so in the summer a lot of companies do exactly what you said.
Meet the work they shorter and say you striving.
To -- more motivated to get your work done because you need to leave earlier yeah Spezza -- this summer hours and -- Friday's off day so.
That's another but I want.
